Did you know that the Guide Dogs for the Blind help fund scientific research? Neither did I, but they do. According to their website, they help fund ophthalmic research…
We are committed to funding high quality research that:
- may lead to better diagnosis or treatment to aid the preservation of sight, and prevent further visual loss in people who are blind or partially-sighted; or
- encourages developments in ophthalmology (including optometry) that may lead to a clinical application within years.
The preservation and enhancement of sight is one of Guide Dogs’ primary research goals, and our ophthalmic research programme plays a key part in supporting that goal and informing our services, policy and campaigns activity.
So if you decide to donate to the Guide Dogs charity, you could be helping to save the eyesight of people from future generations through scientific discoveries and breakthroughs.
