One of the most important things that patients and friends of Save Sight Institute can do, is to help us communicate how critically important eye research is.
The work we do in finding new ways to preserve and restore vision has long term implications, not just for the individuals and families affected, but for communities and the economy as a whole.
In Australia, around 125 babies are born blind and 1600 with significant vision impairment each year. Many more develop eye diseases as they age, and at some point almost all of us are affected.
Funding of eye research is woefully inadequate given its impact and prevalence.
