Make a difference to those affected by vision loss
At The Vision Clinic we support several charities dedicated to helping those affected by vision loss.
Fight for Sight
Fight for Sight is a charity that has been funding research into blindness and eye disease for more than 40 years. It’s the optical equivalent to cancer research – “prevention is better than cure”.
In order to support Fight for Sight, our optician Tanveer recently ran in both a 10k and in a half marathon for this great cause. She raised over £1400 for this wonderful charity. Tanveer has now also run her first Marathon – London 2015 on their behalf. If you want to support her please visit www.justgiving.com/Tan-Asaria

Vision Aid Overseas
When you buy a new pair of spectacles what do you do with your old pair? Do you leave them somewhere to gather dust or become damaged? What if your old, unwanted glasses could change someone’s life?
At The Vision Clinic we encourage all of our clients to donate their old spectacles so we can pass them on to Vision Aid Overseas. This international charity is dedicated to fighting poverty by transforming access to eye care in developing countries.

The Royal National Institute of Blind People is a charity that provides emotional support and advice about a multitude of topics to those who suffer from vision loss.
RNIB is constantly campaigning to raise awareness about vision loss. The charity also offers education and training and spends time promoting accessible services.
