To mark World Sight Day on 8th October 2020, the Graham Layton Trust hopes to give the gift of sight to 500 visually impaired children through cataract surgery. But we need your help in raising £26,000 to do this!
Become a Sight Saviour...
All donations towards this appeal will be DOUBLED thanks to the Lady Fatemah Trust.
The sooner visual impairment in children is diagnosed, the better as delays in treating the immature eye can result in long term sustained damage.
In children, the most common cause of cataracts is injury or genetic conditions. However, following a straightforward procedure, a patient’s eyesight can be restored by inserting an artificial lens.
We are treating greater numbers of babies born with visual impairment at birth and therefore, our specialist units are vital.
Dedicated staff at our specialist paediatric units provide expert care, helping children and their families through an anxious time.
Our School Eye Screening programmes provide testing, glasses and referral for surgery.
