New visual function tool aims to revolutionise eyecare for people with learning disabilities

SeeAbility, the charity that works to make eye care more accessible for people with learning disabilities, has announced the national launch of the Bradford Visual Function Box (BVFB). The box is a functional vision assessment tool allowing eye care professionals to test the vision of people with complex and multiple disabilities.

They can use the BVFB results to explain what the person is able to see around them, which allows parents and support staff supporting a child or adult with complex and severe learning disabilities difficulties to instantly ‘see what they see’.

The BVFB has been developed to address the problem that traditional eye tests can be challenging for people with complex and severe learning disabilities. You can find out more on the SeeAbility website.
