Evidence-based reviews

Blind and partially sighted people come from every section of the community and sight loss affects people of all ages. Each is a unique individual. However there are some common issues and challenges that affect blind and partially sighted people in particular age groups.

About our evidence-based reviews

Every year RNIB publishes Sight loss UK, which reviews the evidence we have about the lives of people living with sight loss. Our Evidence-based reviews look in more detail at the experiences of blind and partially sighted people in different age groups. They include a profile of the group, the policies that govern and impact upon their lives, and a commentary on what the evidence tells us.
