Everyone with an eye condition receives timely treatment and, if permanent sight loss occurs, early and appropriate services and support are available and accessible to all

Outcome 2 of the UK Vision Strategy is focused on the individual who has a sight-threatening condition or is experiencing sight loss, and on the integration of the relevant health and social care services.

In the next five years, we will work to: 

  • Improve the co-ordination, integration, reach and effectiveness of eye health and eye care services.
  • Ensure that, when permanent sight loss occurs, emotional support, habilitation and/or rehabilitation will be provided in a timely fashion, enabling people to retain or regain their independence.
