We campaign for equal rights for visually-impaired people and influence policies & legislation. Our research includes opthalmic research projects & in-house canine research which provides sound scientific evidence on which our services are based. We want a world where blind & partially sighted people can enjoy the same freedom of movement as everyone else.
