This publication summarises findings from research commissioned by Thomas Pocklington Trust and conducted by Loughborough University.
It highlights key areas of cost difference not only between sighted and vision impaired people, but also the change to the cost depending on stage of life and severity of sight loss.
Identified within the research are minimum weekly budgets for:
- a working age person who is eligible for certification as severely sight impaired;
- a pension age person who is eligible for certification as sight impaired and has acquired their sight loss as an adult.
