The Foundation support the Foundation for Ophthalmological Research, based in Oviedo, for the research project entitled “New approaches to the study of neurodegenerative eye diseases: Glaucoma and Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)”. Under the direction of Dr. Héctor González Iglesias, this research focuses on the age-related eye diseases of glaucoma and AMD, which have a devastating effect on sight.

The project seeks to promote the healthy ageing of the Spanish population. Its ultimate aim is to be able to transfer the results obtained to clinical practice in order to make progress in the prevention, early diagnosis, search for new therapeutic targets and personalised treatment of these eye diseases.
