RNIB and Specsavers are working together to transform the nations eye health and defend against avoidable sight loss.
Our research shows that nearly half of all sight loss is avoidable, despite this, nearly six million people in the UK currently live with sight-threatening conditions, yet 25 per cent of people are not having an eye test every two years as recommended by the College of Optometrists.
The extent of the problem means that nearly every family in Britain is touched by sight problems in some way.
Our partnership with Specsavers aims to educate people about eye health and to raise awareness of how regular eye tests can help reduce avoidable sight loss.
