Take the #BlindfoldChallenge

Promotional image with Shane Byrne

Simple things are hard without sight.

For people who depend on touch, it’s now even harder.

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. We are 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.

Help us #fightblindness by taking part in the #BlindfoldChallenge.
