British Council for Prevention of Blindness (BCPB)
BCPB was founded in 1976 to raise funds for research into prevention of blindness and the restoration of sight in both the UK and in the developing world.
The work in the UK tends to focus on improving eye surgery and researching new ways to prevent blindness. In the developing world, as well as the creation of new medicines and treatments for blindness, they also fund training and screening programmes so that people can help diagnose and so prevent blindness in their local community.
