See Ability’s peer-reviewed research shows that thousands of children with disabilities across the country are missing out on the eye care they need. Over four in ten pupils we have seen had no history of sight tests or eye care, and yet half of the children have a problem with their eyes or vision, and at least a third need glasses. NHS England has responded to our findings from this work by committing in their Long Term Plan to providing a fully funded eye care and glasses service to all special school students.
