    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 four Strategic Panels:

    • Evidence and statistics
    • Research, cures and treatments
    • Services, support and care
    • Public perception of sight loss

    Panel members will include senior people from inside and outside the eye health and sight loss sector (including industry where appropriate). The panels will, via discussion and inquiry, set national strategic priorities and targets.

    Who are we?

    Vision UK’s ambition is for the UK to be a nation where:
    • Everyone looks after their sight.
    • 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.
