In November 2019, Fighting Blindness and joined forces with the National Maternity Hospital (NMH) Foundation to raise funds for a new Retinal Camera Scanner– the RetCam – to enable premature babies that are born in the hospital to receive the most advanced sight-saving screening available. There are 500 babies born prematurely in Ireland each year, 30 of those children are at risk of developing blindness through a condition known as retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). To deliver this goal, its4women donated €30,000 to assist with the purchase of the life-changing equipment, which is now in-situ in the neo-natal unit.

Over the course of the next 10 years the RetCam will check the sight of 5,000 premature babies, and save the sight of at least 300. We are proud to support Fighting Blindness with the incredible work they do across Ireland.
