Suffering from a progressive severe visual impairment or complete loss of sight can be a devastating experience, yet so often the conditions that can threaten our sight - such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma - can be treated and controlled, and the resulting visual impairment limited; the earlier a condition is detected, the better the outcome for patients.
The South Tees Hospitals Charity's Retinal Development Appeal was set up to buy vital equipment to help identify and treat visual and retinal problems in patients. For example, the Appeal's funds were used recently to purchase and install a state-of-the-art Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) eye scanner at James Cook University Hospital. The OCT scanner will help clinicians detect and diagnose vision problems at a very early stage, and so vastly improving patient outcomes.
TVLS has chosen to support the Retinal Development Appeal at their Annual Dinner, being held on Friday 2 March 2018. Tickets cost £40 per-person and, with the generous support of NWG Property Solutions, all profits and proceeds will be donated to the Appeal. We also have Kennedy: That Mind Reader Guy, who blends his unnerving abilities with great delivery and good humour, assuring us all of a fantastic evening's entertainment.
You can book your seats using the form below, or by downloading and completing the printable flyer and booking form. But don't delay - the closing date for bookings is 2 February.
