Learning disabilities and eye health

Everyone should have regular sight tests to check their vision and eye health. Sight tests are especially important for people with learning disabilities because the symptoms of sight loss could easily remain hidden.

Top tip cards and guides

We've put together a selection of top tip cards and guides that can help you to better support people with learning disabilities and sight loss.

Healthy Eyes training

Our Healthy Eyes training pack offers step-by-step guidance on how to help adults with learning disabilities to recognise signs of sight loss. It includes information on how to make the participants more confident about going for eye tests and looking after their eye health.
