Eye Care Service rolls out across England in special schools

Eye Care Service rolls out across England in special schools

The new NHS England program provides an eye care service in special schools.

The Special School Eye Care Service has begun to roll out across the country, beginning in the North West of England, with a further rollout in the North East expected this autumn.

The NHS England service provides a comprehensive eye care service in special schools, which includes the provision of sight tests and the dispensing and fitting of spectacles, funded by the NHS. Each child is provided with a report, supporting parents and teachers to understand their vision and needs.

Around 100,000 students attend special schools in England and data suggests these children are 28 times more likely to have a serious sight condition. Research by SeeAbility found that while up to half of these 100,000 students will have a sight impairment, 40,000 children have never had a sight test.
