Receiving a diagnosis of a visual impairment can be a shock akin to bereavement and many people struggle to come to terms with what this means. We are here to help.
825 people living in Reading are registered blind or partially sighted.
The Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB) estimate that 83% of people experiencing sight loss have not been offered emotional support in response to their deteriorating vision, and 31% of people with sight loss are rarely or never optimistic about their future.
