This giving season, we ask you once again to remember the Graham Layton Trust and donate £52 or more if you can, and help another child benefit from sight surgery.
For children, this means they can go to school, have the same opportunities as their friends and look forward to a future of self-sufficiency and independence.
There are over 3 million children suffering from visual impairment; help us help them this Christmas!
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.
