Looking after My Eyes

The series Books Beyond Words has recently brought out a new book about getting good eye care,It is aimed at people with learning disabilities.

Adults with learning disabilities are 10 times more likely to have serious sight problems than other people, yet research shows that 50% of adults with learning disabilities haven’t had a sight test for at least two years.

Most will need extra support to recognise and report changes in their vision, and also to access the eye care services to which they are entitled. This is why wBooks Beyond Words decided to team up with sight loss charity SeeAbility to publish a new story to open up conversations, improve awareness and understanding, and support informed decision-making around eye health.
