My Voice 2015 provides a unique insight into the realities of life as a blind or partially sighted person in the UK today. This is the only survey of its kind . The findings are based on telephone interviews with over 1,200 participants from across the UK.

For many people, losing sight is not a one-off event. People lose sight gradually and experience a number of deteriorations in what they can see. This means that people may need support to learn and relearn how to adapt as their sight deteriorates, and this may be a considerable time after certification and registration.
