A campaign by the RNIB to ensure that everyone diagnosed with sight loss gets emotional support to come to terms with their condition has been backed by East Dunbartonshire MP Jo Swinson.

According to a new survey 44 per cent of UK adults fear sight loss more than any other long-term health condition.

Ms Swinson attended the launch at Westminster of the RNIB’s new report ‘Being There When it Matters’, which is calling for every eye department in the UK to have access to a qualified sight loss adviser so that people are properly supported as they adapt to life with reduced or no vision.
