A useful compendium, all about vision (American)

The Trust is a registered charity that exists to raise awareness of all aspects of eye health and the importance of regular eyecare. You’ll notice a lot of their literature dotted around the practice.

We also support the following charities with themed events, collections and research

The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT) is a charity dedicated to helping anyone affected by retinoblastoma, a rare form of eye cancer which affects babies and young children. They provide support, raise awareness and fund research.

The most common sign of retinoblastoma is a white glow in the pupil of the eye, which can look like a 'cat's eye' in a photograph, especially when there is a 'red eye' look in the other eye. More information can be found here. If you have any concerns please dont hesitate to contact us

The 'glow' is caused by the light reflecting off the tumour at the back of the baby's eye.

The local support group is the  Kettering & Corby Support Group and they meet the 1st Monday of each month 10.00 - 12 noon, at the Cornmarket Hall. Open to people with any kind of visual impairment.

Every hour, another person in the UK goes blind, which means we need to train more guide dog puppies. Sponsor a puppy from just £1 a week, and they’ll send you regular Pupdates, so you can follow your puppy's journey to becoming a life-changing companion for a blind or partially sighted person.

Vision Aid Overseas is an international charity dedicated to fighting poverty by transforming access to eye care in developing countries. 640 million people - 10% of the world's population - are disadvantaged by poor vision and a lack of spectacles.

We are a collection point for recycling old spectacles for Vision Aid Overseas.

Vision Aid Overseas runs a nationwide spectacle collection scheme which operates to raise money for our work. Recycled spectacles are not sent overseas. Vision Aid Overseas will ensure spectacles are recycled in an environmentally-friendly way and income generated from recycling is used to support our programmes overseas.

Look out for our coffee mornings where we raise money for Fight for Sight
