Summary

The number of people with sight loss in the UK is forecast to double over the next 20 years. The main reason is the UK’s ageing population with one in five people aged over 75 challenged by poor eyesight. This report covers measures taken to research the nation’s state of vision and what can be done for the future of eye health. It examines ways to catch sight problems early in children and how to reduce accidents on the roads with regular eye tests. It also looks at the advancements in bionic vision that have the potential to restore lost sight and how glasses have transformed from geeky essentials to fashion must-haves
