Centre for Sight is a London-based medical and surgical eye-care specialist with locations in Sussex, Surrey and London.[1] Centre for Sight was founded by Dr Sheraz Daya, a British ophthalmologist and eye surgeon. The surgery is best known for its pioneering work in the use of stem cell therapy research during sight recovery surgery.[2][3] Centre for Sight received considerable media attention in 2010 when surgeons restored a man's vision following 10 years of blindness[4] and again in 2012 when a femtosecond laser was used to perform cataract surgery for the first time, in front of a live audience in East Grinsted.[5] One of the company's most well-known clients is Katie Piper,[6][7] the sulphuric acid attack victim turned television personality.

History[edit]

Centre for Sight[8] was founded by Sheraz Daya MD FACP FACS FRCS(Ed)FRCOphth[9] in 1996. In 2004 the company introduced “scalpel free” Intralase femtosecond laser for high precision eye surgery.

Charity[edit]

Centre for Sight formed the Centre for Sight Trust[10] to progress eye care in developing countries. The Trust was established in the UK by Centre for Sight directors Sheraz Daya and Marcela Espinosa. Using UK derived donations and charitable contributions one of the objectives is to develop eye care in developing countries as well as promotion of eye research in the UK.[11]
