Eye Run Champion CI A/Prof Ho Ching Lin:

So excited to share about The Eye Run/Cycle 2021 - the first virtual fundraiser by SNEC and SERI! This newest challenge is for the vital purpose of saving sight, and lending a helping hand to eye research and education for blindness prevention! I've signed up for this event to play a small part in this important cause, and it's kicking off soon, from 1 October to 30 November.

I'm Ho Ching Lin, and I am motivated to take on this challenge - I'm a Senior Consultant ophthalmologist, as well as a clinician researcher and educator. I specialise in glaucoma, the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide and one of the top eye diseases linked to ageing. In Singapore alone, glaucoma is behind 40% of blindness cases!

I treat both adults and children with this disease, so I am committed to beating this 'silent thief of sight'! Also, as Director of Philanthropy and Development for the Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences Academic Clinical Programme (Eye ACP), I'm pumped and ready to lead by example in supporting VisionSave, the beneficiary of this challenge.

While I usually spend more time on the mat as a yogi, I've pledged to cover 50km on foot in The Eye Run/Cycle to create awareness for glaucoma and other blinding diseases. I hope to raise $25,000 towards research and education that will preserve the eyesight of many people. Help me reach my donation goal and join the fight against blindness today!

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.
