Supporting research

Our staff conduct world-leading research spanning a range of issues. The focus is currently on four high priority issues:

  • School screening – enabling early detection of correctable issues
  • Myopia research – by 2050, 50% of the population will be myopic and this is now one of the leading causes of blindness in the developed world
  • Vision and neurological conditions – eg using children’s eye movement to diagnose autism spectrum disorder, imaging nerves within the eye to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease
  • Macular degeneration – 40% of people aged 50+ will develop age-related macular degeneration; early detection is critical as treatment can slow the disease but cannot restore sight



If you would like to donate to support the cutting-edge research taking place and the community programmes' intiatives based on the research, please see
