John Mann MP has supported a debate in Parliament on avoidable sight loss.

There are almost 2 million people in the UK living with sight loss, and this is predicted to double to around 4 million people by 2050, in part due to our ageing population. It is estimated that 50% of sight loss incidences are avoidable. Despite the high occurrence of sight loss, there is no overarching strategy in England to govern it, in contrast to the strategies that exist for hearing loss and dementia. Eye care strategies do exist in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
