About Campaign

I will be participating again in the second edition of 'The Eye Run/Cycle 2022' organised by The Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC) and Singapore Eye Research Institute (SERI) coming up on 1 July. It is 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 a research scientist. I treat patients with glaucoma as well as research on this 'silent thief of sight'. Glaucoma is one of the top eye diseases linked to aging in Singapore. It causes 40% of blindness in Singapore.

I will be walking 200km in The Eye Run /Cycle to create awareness of this deadly and silent disease. I am hoping to raise $10,000 towards research & education. I look forward to your support to help reach my donation target and to motivate me towards completing this distance in my fight 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.
