"It's shocking that in 21st century Wales people are still being left to face blindness alone".

Imagine if you lost your sight tomorrow. How would you cope? Basic tasks such as preparing food or catching a bus suddenly become much more difficult when you lose your sight.

With the number of people with sight loss expected to double in the next 25 years, there is an urgent need to ensure that people who lose their sight tomorrow, can access timely rehabilitation support and that the service will be able to cope with the significant increase in future demand.

It is shocking that in 21st century Wales people are still being left to face blindness alone".
