How your support helps 

People living with sight loss navigate their entire lives through touch – now they don’t even have that. Over a quarter of a million people are living with sight loss in Ireland. Fighting Blindness is the primary source of dedicated counselling support for them and their families.

Right now, we need your help more than ever. We’re the only charity in Ireland funding research into treatments and cures for sight loss. Our mission is to cure blindness, support people living with sight loss and empower patients.

We rely on the generosity of the public for almost 90% of our income; this crisis will hit us hard.
