Support for Blind Walk

The UK’s 100% Optical has pledged its support for the Big Blind Walk 2018, in collaboration with VisionBridge, to help stop sight loss in its tracks.
Promising a bumper gathering for its “fabulous fifth anniversary” at London Excel on January 27-29, 2018, the show will help raise awareness of life changing eye research.
Founder of VisionBridge, Julian Jackson said: “Sadly, eye research is one of the best kept secrets in the UK, despite all the impressive breakthroughs and developments over the last 50 years but with the help of 100% Optical, we hope to change this.
“100% Optical is the place where eye health innovation begins. It pulls the optical profession together and represents the very best in education for optometry and ophthalmology.”

“We want to support and enhance the optical sector and this is the perfect cause for us to champion this year.
The show is more than just an industry event, it has always aimed to provide a thought leadership platform and influential “voice” for eye health innovation.”

100% Optical event director, Nathan Garnett 

Supported by 100% Optical and Second Sight, the 1,000 mile walk from Land's End to John O'Groats commences on 29 April for seven weeks and aims to raise awareness and understanding of sight loss, promote eye research and create a new fund for translational research.
