Learning Disabilities Eyes and Vision


Wednesday 16th June 2021 7.30pm

Presented by Simon Berry

1 interactive CET point


10% of people with a learning disability have a serious eye condition.

60% of people with a learning disability need glasses.

It is likely that some of these patients will be missed if they do not have proper access to eye care services. A standard eye examination is not really tailored for the needs of someone with a learning disability and there may be better way of doing things. Simon Berry, renowned optometrist and current editor of the online academic journal Clinical Optometry, will join us for a lecture on learning disabilities and how the sight test can be altered to suit a person with a learning disability.

The discussion around myopia management is undergoing a significant paradigm shift, from correction to control of myopia.
