Children in Focus Campaign

Children in Focus Campaign

SeeAbility’s Children in Focus Campaign wants specialist sight tests available in every special school in England.

Sight is very important to a child’s learning and development, and early eye care can prevent more serious sight problems later on.

We’ve been delivering specialist sight tests in selected special schools, a familiar and convenient place for children and parents.

Children with learning disabilities are 28 times more likely to have a serious sight problem than other children, but are often not accessing the eye care they need. We found nearly 4 in 10 pupils had no history of sight tests or eye care.

We also found three quarters of children with disabilities who had been under the care of hospital eye clinics and were now discharged, had no history of follow up sight tests in the community.

Our research shows that thousands of children with disabilities across the country are missing out on the eye care they need. There is no national plan to meet their eye care needs.

We want this to change.
