Charity video demonstrates vision impairment from The Thomas Pocklington Trust

Vision impairment demonstration video from The Thomas Pocklington Trust. Working with the RNIB and Glaucoma UK.

The video is about Vision impairment, ‘What do we see? How the world looks to blind and partially sighted people,’. It focuses on the six most common sight conditions in the UK; cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, retinitis pigmentosa, hemianopia, age-related macular degeneration, and glaucoma.

Each simulation features a narration that describes the condition, its cause, demographics, impact, and available treatment.
