eggs raises funds
EGGS (Eye Go Game Spotting) is an annual fundraising event which raises money for the Eye Centre and other good causes in the area. Teams set out to capture as many animals, birds and plants as they can, each photo earning points.
This year, EGGS raised an incredible £11,550 for the community.
This lion gained the photographer's team 55 points.
Sometimes we are unable to improve a persons vision with surgery or glasses. In these cases they are referred to our low vision department. Here, they are given low vision aids such as magnifiers and telescopes, and are taught ways to maintain their independence with poor eyesight. It is a very important department at the Eye Centre.
The photo shows (from left) Lilian, Robert, Nzirani, Bijan Azami, Almasi,
Beasy and Amos, who work together in the low vision department.
