    Vision UK

    Vision UK works in collaboration with partners across the eye health and sight loss sector to deliver positive change for blind and partially sighted people. To enable this we are setting up 4 Strategic Panels:

    • Epidemiology, evidence and statistics
    • Research, cures and treatments
    • Services, support and care
    • Public understanding of eye health and sight loss

    We visualise these panels to be senior people from inside and outside of the eye health and sight loss sector (including industry where appropriate). These panels will, via discussion and inquiry, set national strategic priorities and targets for the four headlines.

    Vision UK’s ambition is for the UK to be a nation where:

    • People’s eye conditions are identified early, treated and, where possible, cured.
    • People obtain services which are person centred, joined- up and good quality.
    • People with sight loss live the lives they choose.
