SeeAbility provides extraordinary support and champions better eye care for people with learning disabilities and autism, many of whom have sight loss.
Good eyesight enables people to learn, communicate and feel more conﬁdent. Shockingly, our research suggests that people with learning disabilities in the UK are far more likely to have serious sight problems but less likely to have had a sight test.
We’re tackling this health inequality by providing sight tests to children in special schools, running peer to peer education programmes and changing the way the eye care system works.
We want to achieve an equal right to sight for everyone.
