More than 95% of vision loss is caused by strictly ocular problems, although visual function is an entirely 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 promote the Point Of View Award annually, in which we reward the most relevant scientific work in this area. This award consists of an economic endowment of $20,000 and we are working to incorporate a mobility grant so that local scientists can go to training with cutting-edge international research groups.
In the long term, we are working to make Barcelona a benchmark in Europe for research against vision injuries, an action that we frame in the Barcelona City of Vision project.
Nobody should lose light when their eyes turn off.
