London Eye Hospital Trust

The London Eye Hospital charity was set up to help the populations most in need such as educations for trachoma in children, the leading cause of worldwide childhood blindness and Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) in the elderly which is the leading cause of untreatable blindness in the developed world.

AMD occurs when the macular in the eye becomes damaged, which creates a loss of central vision. It’s very debilitating, makes it hard to see faces, read, drive and it also takes away a person’s hard fought for independence. Tens of millions of people suffer from AMD worldwide, yet it’s rarely discussed in the mainstream media in comparison to its wide spread nature.

The London Eye Hospital Trust is working hard to bring treatment to those who really need it, not just those who can afford it. We’re also working hard to overcome ignorance caused by the increasingly out of date view that ‘no treatment is available.’ While this was once true, it’s becoming less so thanks to remarkable technological advances in treatment and materials.

Our stated aim is to continue to drive down the cost of treatment until it can be distributed widely, cost effectively and to all ophthalmic surgeons so treatment can be carried out on a mass scale.

The London Eye Hospital Trust, the charitable wing of the world renowned London Eye Hospital, is working in partnership with the hospital on a range of remarkable new lenses. They are implanted into the eye in a procedure taking little more than 7 minutes.

The lens gently diverts the light to the healthier parts of the macula, utilising the parts that have the least, or no damage, with often remarkable results.

Our role at the trust is to bring this treatment to the widest possible audience, continue to drive down the price of treatment and to continually encourage the hospital to make available to us a not for profit lens. While the private sector is fantastic at innovation, it lags behind in being able to treat millions of people in a short period of time. That’s where we come in.

We will continue to work hard at this until the major health organisations around the world, like the NHS in the UK, can easily afford the treatment, saving them millions from their annual treatment budget and putting them in a position when they can treat the people that really need it.
