Knowledge can be Prevention
Eyesight is a gift. Many of us are given the gift from birth, but not all of us. Others have this gift fade over the years and others still have it taken away at some point in life. Those who have never had problems with their eyesight often take it for granted.
The Importance of Eye Health Education. A lack of knowledge could mean the difference between being able to see and spending the rest of their lives in near or complete blindness. Vision Support are currently working with the University of Chester and working towards visiting schools in the area with their MOBILE INFORMATION UNIT to demonstrate to people in younger education the difficulties people with sight loss have to face on a daily basis.
