Raising Funds For Visionsave
Since last year, charity gala Eye Ball, jointly organised by the SNEC and SERI, seeks to raise funds for the Visionsave campaign, and they are hoping to hit $25 million by the year 2020. These funds will be used to assist needy patients with eye ailments, public education and research as well as build healthcare facilities for vision care. This year, Eye Ball will be held on Nov 4. Dr Ho Ching Lin, chair of the organising committee for Eye Ball, wants to turn it into a landmark event for Singapore’s ophthalmologists. She believes promoting public education and cultivating the next generation of ophthalmologists are an investment for the future. She also hopes that there will be fewer people in each generation who would have to contend with the agony of going blind.
