Shining a light on SeeAbility

Charity SeeAbility helps take sight tests to those who have never had them before. Optician reports

There are plenty of practitioners in the industry who go the extra mile every day to help their patients, often without any praise.

Providing this service is SeeAbility, one of the oldest visual impairment charities in the world, originally founded in 1799.
