That this House notes with concern that over two million people in the UK are at risk of needlessly losing their sight through treatable eye conditions; further notes that 100 people every day start to lose their sight, half of which could have been prevented through regular sight tests and early treatment; further notes that this important public health message must be taken seriously by national and local government, commissioners, health and social care professionals and the public; and urges the Government to ensure that reducing avoidable sight loss is an indicator in the public health outcome framework.
