abstract = "Sight loss affects all aspects of well-being including daily functioning and mental health. Demographic trends suggest that the number of people with visual impairment is set to rise significantly, with many people experiencing an additional disability or health problems. By 2050, the number of blind and partially sighted people in the UK is estimated to increase by around 122 per cent, to approximately four million. Promoting preventive and rehabilitation interventions is recognised as a high priority for all care settings as a way of reducing demands on health and social care services. This research, funded by the Thomas Pocklington Trust, aimed to provide an overview of the evidence base for community-based vision rehabilitation services for people over the age of 18 with visual impairment. The study focused on rehabilitation services funded by local authorities to find out how these services are currently supporting people with visual impairment, what possible outcomes they might achieve and to identify gaps in the evidence base about current service arrangements. The study was carried out in England. Findings were intended to inform a future full scale evaluation as well as inform services. ",
