Sight Loss – The Essential Guide
If your sight is not as good as it used to be, you are not alone. Sight loss affects 1.8 million people in the UK. RNIB research predicts that by 2050 the number of people with partial sight and blindness in the UK will double to nearly 4 million, and most people find their sight worsening as they get older.
Sight Loss – The Essential Guide, by Antonia Chitty and Victoria Dawson, published today, is for anyone who wishes to find out more about sight loss or who is concerned about that of a relative or friend.
This practical guide takes you through all aspects of sight loss, starting with how it is defined and what causes it. This book also covers the help and support, including financial aid, which is available, and tips on adjusting your home and lifestyle to suit your changing needs.
Both authors are aware of the difficulties created by sight loss: Antonia Chitty is a trained optometrist as well as a freelance health writer; Victoria Dawson has been teaching in special schools for eight years. They say, ‘Losing your sight is stressful and confusing. You can find yourself visiting a number of professionals who may talk in jargon, and afterwards sit at home wondering exactly what is happening to your sight.’ This book aims to explain in clear terms what is happening to your vision, what you can expect in the future and offers advice and support.
If you or someone you know is suffering from worsening vision, Sight Loss – The Essential Guide will give you a better understanding of eye problems and offers practical tips and solutions at this worrying time.
