Eye care professionals

We work to ensure people with learning disabilities receive the eye care they need.

We know thousands of people with learning disabilities are missing out on potentially life-changing eye tests or support with their sight loss, despite having an alarmingly high level of sight problems.

We provide a range of free resources for eye care professionals to support people with learning disabilities. We offer training and consultancy and we’re also often at the major eye care and vision conferences with our free resources.

You can add your optical practice to our database so people with learning disabilities know about the support you offer.

If you have any queries or need further help please contact us at eyecare@seeability.org.

The importance of providing accessible eye care
The Bradford Visual Function Box

The Bradford Visual Function Box

People with learning disabilities are 10x more likely to have serious sight problems. But traditional eye tests can be challenging. The Bradford Visual Function Box's innovative approach means you don't need to communicate to have your eyes tested.

No-one is too disabled to have an eye test.

In September 2019 we gave a webinar with Learning Disability England called No-one is too disabled to have an eye test. Don’t worry if you missed it, as you can watch it above.
