Mission Statement

The Partially Sighted Society provides information, advice, training, magnifiers and electronic low vision aids and clear print material for anybody with a visual impairment to help them to make the best use of their remaining sight.

The PSS developed and promoted the Symbol of Visual Disability, commonly known as the Shaded Eye. This is internationally recognised as the symbol of visual disability. This symbol has been incorporated into a variety of products to help identify the wearer as being sight impaired.
