Equal right to sight

Master-SeeAbility-Logo[1]SeeAbility wanted to say thank you for promoting the surveys they ran earlier this year.  They used the information from the surveys in our new report Delivering an equal right to sight.
The report says that people with learning disabilities experience alarmingly high levels of sight problems but unequal access to eye care. www.seeability.org/equalrighttosight

It says national change is needed for a more inclusive system of eye care for adults and children with learning disabilities, for example in special schools, and for all working age adults with learning disabilities to be eligible for NHS funded sight tests.

So they have now got a petition going on the parliament website and are looking for signatures to this too https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/133239
