“Since its inception, Fighting Blindness has been driven by ambitious, courageous and radical people who know that through excellent and daring scientific research we can change the future for those living with sight loss, while always standing with its members and advocating on their behalf. It is fulfilling to work in a charity whose clear priority is the people it serves and I am privileged to be part of it.”

“Fighting Blindness believes in the power of research as a means to cure and deliver more effective treatments for those living in Ireland with sight loss. Accordingly, it strongly advocates, promotes and invests in both academic and clinical areas of research. The pace of change has never been so exciting or so rapid and I consider it a privilege to be part of this process.”
