Embracing assistive technology in the fight against sight loss
There is no doubt that sight loss continues to be a clear and present danger in the UK and globally.

So how can assistive technology (AT) help this situation? Julian Jackson’s plea to the NHS is that the vital role that AT can play in rehabilitating patients is not lost in the justified battle against sight loss which includes improved screening, treatments, surgery, gene research and positive lifestyle messaging.

The Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust is leading a collaborative initiative with VisionBridge and Sight and Sound Technology to regularly update their healthcare professionals about the innovations in assistive technology so that in turn their patients can make an informed choice and be supported by an ethical and trusted provider at every point along the patient referral pathway.
