Sight Loss: Public Involvement Event

Who is this event for? If you know through personal experience or acquaintances about the impact sight loss can have on older people’s independence or wellbeing, we would like to invite you to come to an informal chat for half an hour.

You are warmly invited to join us at a drop-in meeting to find out more about the project and ways in which you can get involved.

National studies suggest that many older people have sight loss that goes undetected or untreated. This can greatly reduce quality of life because people cannot do things as
they used to. Left untreated loss of vision can lead to falls that can have serious consequences. The NHS want to improve what they do so they can reduce the impact of
sight loss on wellbeing.

Our researchers are working with Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to develop ways to improve detection and access to care for older people with sight loss in Sheffield.
