About Campaign

ends 31 Aug 2022, 11:59 PM
I am participating in the 2nd 'The Eye Run/Cycle 2021' organised by The Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC) and Singapore Eye Research Institute (SERI) coming up on 1 July. It is a virtual fundraiser for VisionSave. All the proceeds will go towards helping us uncover new ways to detect, diagnose and develop future treatments for eye diseases. It will also help train healthcare professionals to meet the ever-evolving needs of the patients.

I am an eye doctor and also the Chief Risk Officer and deputy vice-chair in Professionalism and Ethics. I am a retina surgeon taking care of patients with retina diseases. Age-related macular degeneration, a chronic retina disease, is fast becoming common among a rapidly ageing population in Singapore.

I will be running 100km in The Eye Run /Cycle spread over July and August to support the work of SNEC in research and education. I am hoping to raise $5,000 towards this run for sight.

About the Charity

Launched in July 2016, VisionSave is a novel initiative that taps on philanthropic investment to usher in innovative eye care research, treatment and delivery in Singapore and the region. It also aims to save sight and ensure optimal outcome for every patient.

VisionSave aligns with SNEC and SERI's reputation as a centre of eye care and research excellence in Singapore, as well as the philanthropic spirit of the late SNEC founder Professor Arthur Lim, who modelled a giving spirit in both his personal and professional endeavours.
