Neonatal Appeal - Love At First Sight
Today, the most vulnerable babies treated in Glasgow's neonatal units could lose their sight to a curable condition.
With your help, we can buy special equipment that will give surgeons the best possible chance of saving their sight.
We hope to raise £150,000 to purchase potentially sight-saving pieces of kit for the neonatal units at the Royal Hospital for Children, Princess Royal Maternity and Royal Alexandra Hospitals.
The state-of-the-art imaging equipment will enable teams across the three hospitals to screen for and detect a devastating condition which can lead to complete loss of sight in premature babies.
If detected in time, there is an excellent chance that a baby’s sight can be saved.
Eoghan Millar, Consultant Ophthalmologist also at the Royal Hospital for Children said:
“Retinopathy of prematurity is a potentially devastating condition. This equipment will allow us to better serve the most vulnerable in our society.
"We will be able to make better treatment choices and save more sight whilst extending care further.
"We would hope in the future no child would be blinded by this condition and this equipment will take us a step further in that journey.”
With your help, we hope to save the sight of tiny babies across Glasgow and the West. Thank you.
