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.
VisionSave aims to:
Provide financial assistance for needy patients with sight-threatening diseases
Educate people in the areas of saving sight
Develop long-term understanding of eye diseases and solutions
Support research and innovation in the field of ophthalmology
These steps will go a long way to:
Save vision by preventing avoidable blindness
Restoring vision by helping those already experiencing vision loss
Protect vision by addressing people at risk of sight loss
To fulfil these noble intentions, VisionSave targets to raise $25 million by 2020. So far, close to $6 million has been raised, from donations as well as contributions from The EYE Ball, VisionSave’s annual fundraising gala. We are grateful for the generous contributions that we have received. But, we are still a distance away from our target.
Every contribution counts towards better quality of life for those with impaired vision and a brighter future for eye care. By giving, we bring hope to those who have none. We need your support to save Singapore’s vision.

Be a part of our mission and leave a legacy of sight to those who need it the most.
$10 may mean a weekday lunch to some of us. But it can also go a long way towards paying a needy patient’s fees, sponsoring an ophthalmologist in training, or funding innovative treatment for eye conditions.
