Our Sight Loss Champion course is designed for eyecare and healthcare clinical and non-clinical professionals and staff working with patients living with sight loss.
Every day, 250 people in the UK start to lose their sight and every 6 minutes someone is told they’re going blind. So it is vital you have the skills and knowledge to support your patients along their sight loss journey.
There are currently two million people in the UK living with sight loss and this is estimated to increase to 2.7 million by 2030 and 4 million by 2050, so visual impairment awareness training is now more important than ever.
Sight loss is indiscriminate in that it can affect anyone at any stage in their life and the signs are not always obvious.
We’ll focus on empathy and engagement as a means of raising awareness and channelling positive change for people living with visual impairment, while developing attitudes towards, and opportunities for, people with sight loss.
Our course has been designed by professional trainers who have lived experiences of visual impairment meaning you will get real insights into living with sight loss.
On average, our learners take between 1 and 2 hours to complete the course.
When you’ve read the content and answered all the questions, you can download a personalised certificate confirming that you’ve completed the course. You will receive CET points (available to optometrists and dispensing opticians) or you can use the certificate towards your CPD.
