London Assembly: Eye Health – preventing sight loss in London report

6 December 2017
Source: London Assembly

Eye health is a growing issue in London and we expect to see many more Londoners living with eye conditions in the future.

London faces challenges around prevention, diagnosis and treatment of sight-threatening conditions, but many cases of sight loss are avoidable.

It is critical that eye health becomes a greater public health priority in London and more needs to be done to encourage Londoners to look after their eyes and go for regular eye tests.

The Mayor should challenge London’s health leaders to integrate eye health into their plans. The committee is calling on the Mayor to support the development and implementation of a Londonwide Eye Health Strategy.
