The Eye Department at Ipswich is one of the busiest in the hospital and offer an extensive range of services to adults and children.
The appeal has been set up to raise £55,000 for a portable non-invasive imaging test called an OCT. This is a really clever piece of kit that has the potential to detect, diagnose and monitor eye diseases earlier.
It will be particularly beneficial to infants, children, wheelchair users and those who are bed bound. At present these groups of people cannot always access the hospital’s other imaging equipment and therefore are unable to benefit from it. The difference it will make to patients will be invaluable.
