Sight loss charity Blind Veterans  has today (22/02/19) released a new film to highlight the isolationblind veterans UK Logo experienced by many who lose their sight.

The film, ‘Ken’s Story’, demonstrates the loneliness often experienced by the veterans Blind Veterans UK supports, as any issues of isolation felt as we age can increase if you have lost your sight.

The average age of ex-Service men and women supported by Blind Veterans UK is 84 and the vast majority of the veterans they support have lost their sight later in life, decades after their service, due to age-related conditions.

The film follows the journey experienced by Ken, a blind veteran supported by the charity since 2015. It captures the loneliness and isolation that Ken felt when he lost his sight due to age-related macular degeneration (ARMD).
