Embracing research and innovation is a core part of what we do.  Sunderland Eye Infirmary has an outstanding reputation for research. Our clinical teams have won many awards.  This will continue at the new Eye Hospital.  We will keep striving to improve services and eye treatments through high quality research and innovation.

The new City centre location means we will be even closer to Sunderland University.  This will provide even more opportunities to work with patients, the public and our partners.  We want to grow our status as a centre of excellence in ophthalmology research.
