What if you had a problem with your vision but because of your other disabilities you couldn’t ask for help?
Sadly this is the situation for thousands of children and adults across the UK. It makes their life so much harder than it needs to be, and puts them at a greater risk of irreversible sight loss. Vision – the thing we take for granted everyday – makes a massive positive impact on their lives.
Open Reality and BrightCloud are long-time supporters of UK charity SeeAbility that is working to create a better life for disabled people. For the second year running we are sponsoring and participating in SeeAbility Week.
What is See Ability Week?
See Ability week is designed to promote good eye health in the workplace, an important issue for employees who experience an increasing amount of screen time and related eye problems, and to raise much needed funds to support their life-changing work.
When is it?
SeeAbility Week is on the 9th – 15th October 2017, encompassing World Sight Day on the 12th October – an international awareness day focussing on visual impairment and preventing avoidable sight loss.
