The Research Foundation
Help Us to Help Others
Support our vital research work into eye disease, such as
- Culturing of stem cells from the eye to benefit patients undergoing corneal transplant
- A new study into ocular melanoma, an eye tumour which can result in loss of the eye
- A study on the effects of smoking on macular degenation
The Research Foundation in the Royal Victoria Eye & Ear Hospital provides support for clinical research involving eye, ear, nose and throat diseases.
There is an emphasis on clinical and translational research, where patient-focused laboratory investigations aim to improve patient care through the development of new treatments.
Following the tragic AF447 Rio-Paris accident Dr Eithne Walls' family established a Research Fund in her memory.
