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.
We’ve just completed our first event which was a quiz night at Seckford Golf Club. Over 85 people attended and we would like to say a very big thank you to everyone who came along as we raised over £1,500 which is fantastic.
There are no events for the Eye Appeal to book right now, but check back soon so you don’t miss out!
