SeeAbility publishes report into special schools sight testing
The report is based on data gathered during four years of their Children in Focus project. SeeAbility has supported over 1,200 children at special schools in England, providing adjusted eye tests and collecting data.
This is the biggest global study actively reporting on the eye care needs of children with learning disabilities. The report shows that:
47.5% had a problem with their vision
31.7% needed glasses
43.7% had no history of eye care
only 7% had ever used a community optician
SeeAbility are calling on NHS England to make wide reforms to community eye care for children and adults with learning disabilities and introduce adjusted eye tests in special schools. You can pledge your support here and read more about their campaign here.
