    Help Children See for LongerProceeds from the Eyes on The Future Gala Dinner 2018 will help us support indispensable research into Leber Congenital Amaurosis, a severe form of inherited eye disease causing blindness in children. LCA affects thousands in the UK and hundreds of thousands worldwide. There is currently NO cure. Your support will help us to fund a three year research project to slow down the progression of the condition and help children see for longer.Please note, the online auction website will close at 22:40 on Wednesday 10th October. If you are not attending the event we encourage you to use the ‘Maximum Bid’ feature in order to increase your chances of winning auction items. 

    “Imagine being told that in a few years you will not be able to meet the eyes of your loved ones or admire a beautiful red sunset over the sea.
    Vicky is four and she is slowly going blind. She has been diagnosed with Leber Congenital Amaurosis (LCA) a severe form of degenerative eye disease progressively leading children to blindness by their late teens /early twenties.
    We aim to raise £350,000 to fund a three year research project to develop LCA eye condition models from patients own stem cells for testing therapies to potentially slow down the progression of the condition. The project is supported by a partnership between University College London’s Institute of Ophthalmology and Moorfields Eye Hospital and led by Dr Mariya Moosajee, leading consultant ophthalmologist and researcher”

    There is real hope that we could save Vicky’s sight and that of many other children.
