'State of the Nation Eye Health 2017 - Report for Eye Health Week

A report by RNIB and Specsavers opticians has been launched in advance of Eye Health Week. 'The State of the Nation Eye Health 2017: A Year in Review' includes new information on the incidence of sight loss and attitudes towards eye health in the UK. It reveals that 1 in 5 people will live with sight loss in their lifetime, although 25%  of UK adults haven’t had an eye test in the past two years or at all.

The report includes examples of good practice, such as the Austin Friars Eye Treatment Centre in Newport (a collaboration between Aneurin Bevan University Health Board and Specsavers) and Singleton Hospital in Swansea’s integrated clinical pathway.

For more information, and to read the full report, visit the RNIB website.
