Who we are

The Gift of Sight Eye Research Centre is based at Southampton General Hospital. Our main areas of research are age related macular degeneration, glaucoma and inherited retinal diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa.  Our children’s eye research programme investigates conditions which affect children and young babies.

The Gift of Sight research team is dedicated to furthering our understanding of the causes and treatments for blinding eye diseases. Our adult ocular stem cell and gene therapy programmes are gaining momentum towards future therapies and treatments. With your support we aim to ensure vision into the future for those who are suffering today.

What we do

The Gift of Sight Appeal was established with the aim of funding world-class research into the prevention and treatment of blindness.  Age-related macular degeneration studies could also provide therapies for other blinding retinal diseases.

Why we need you

Our sky dive in May 2014 raised over £13,000 let’s see if we can beat that in 2017.




A list of charities that we are partnered with are here for you to select. Some of the charities that we work with have fundraising targets and others are self-funded by yourself, each charity we work with will state if they will contribute to some of your jump cost or if you need to self-fund your own place.


You can book individually or as a group with just a £50 deposit per person on any operational day. Some of the charities we work with have reserved spaces on pre-selected days that you are more than welcome to join.


OK you’re all set – This is now the time to start fundraising for your selected charity, we recommend to set up an online fundraising page as all funds you raise will automatically go to the charity of your choice. Please remember you are unable to use any money raised to pay for your skydive and if you have a target set by the charity you have to hit this 3 weeks before the date of your jump to ensure these funds are online for the charity to see!
