Updated sight loss data tool from the UK

EBU’s UK member, the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) has released a new version of the Sight Loss Data Tool. This is a free to use stats tool for local information on eye health and sight loss. The update includes a new tab in the Excel file and a new set of reports that cover health and social care geography. There’s also more health and social care data relating to eye care in local areas across the UK.

The RNIB’s Sight Loss Data Tool is the UK’s biggest collection of eye health datasets. It collates a wide range of publicly available datasets and allows users to view local area data easily in a report or as data tables.

This data tool provides information about blind and partially sighted people and those at risk of sight loss at a local level throughout the UK. It is widely used in the eye health and sight loss sector for local strategy, campaigning and fundraising.

The tool can be downloaded from the RNIB site to find out more information.
