Welcome to the Bradbury Fields Learning Portal. Here you can find information and guidance on a range of subjects relating to the work we do with blind and partially sighted people. We also have a range of campaign resources and courses available for people who want to learn more about sight loss, blindness and eye care.
Common Eye Conditions
In this section, you will learn all about the most common eye conditions, how they affect sight as well as some simulations for demonstration purposes. Knowing how sight loss affects different people with different conditions is important to understanding the challenges that blind and partially sighted people face.
This section will teach you how to look after your eyes and preserve your sight as best you can, with handy tips scientifically proven to reduce the risk of sight loss. Looking after your eyes is as important as any other part of your body. Our sight is a priceless tool. However, many of us neglect this vital sense until it is too late.
At Bradbury Fields we are dedicated to improving the lives of blind and partially sighted people through accessibility campaigns. We are also supporters of the prevention of blindness agenda. In this section you can learn more about our work to make our local area and further afield a more diverse and healthy place.
