Liz’s life changed without warning. Whilst watching television one evening, her sight just went. Naturally, Liz had many questions, but nobody was there to help.
“My life had been turned upside down. A sight loss adviser could have made such a difference.”
Sight loss advisers are trained professionals who work in hospital eye clinics. While doctors and ophthalmologists know how to deal with sight conditions from a medical point of view, it’s the sight loss advisers that can give people like me emotional support and practical advice on how to cope.
You could help more sight loss advisers say “I am here” for people like Liz.
Every 15 minutes another person in the UK starts to lose their sight. Who will be there for them? Your donation to RNIB today could help ensure that more sight loss advisers are trained and available in hospital eye clinics across the UK.
