Every day we provide cataract diagnosis and treatment to private patients from our clinic bases in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling, Aberdeen and the Scottish Borders. We see how cataract surgery can change someone’s life for the better. We only wish that we could make it available to everyone.
By fundraising for cataract surgery, we hope to bring treatment to people who wouldn't have the means to pay for treatment on their own. Our fundraising will cover the costs of theatre and clinical equipment required for cataract surgery. Our surgeons and nursing staff will give their time for free of charge.
In September, the Vision Scotland team and our Optometrist colleagues will be walking and running 44 miles of the West Highland Way to raise funds to treat as many patients as possible.
In this way, we hope to make a meaningful difference to even more cataract sufferers throughout Scotland.
