By providing robust evidence on sight loss and those at risk of sight loss at a local level, the data tool can also support a range of other activities such as:
Our sight loss data tool supports work done by the UK Vision Strategy and RNIB. It is available for you to use free of charge.

Right now we can only reach one in three of the people who need our help most. Please make a donation and help us support more blind and partially sighted people.Donate now
