More than 95% of vision loss is caused by strictly ocular problems, although the visual function is a completely cerebral capacity. At Punt de Vista we believe in science as a driving force for transformation and we want to build a world where blindness is a bad curable.
In collaboration with the ARVO Foundation, we are promoting the Point Of View Award annually, in which we reward the most important scientific work in this area. This award consists of an economic endowment and we are working to incorporate a mobility scholarship for local scientists to be trained with international vanguards research groups.
In the long term, we are working to turn Barcelona into a benchmark in Europe for research against injury of vision, an action that we mark in the Barcelona City of Vision Project.
Nobody should lose light when their eyes turn out.
