About us

We are Devon’s leading sight loss charity providing FREE practical help and advice to people who are blind or partially sighted to help you live life to the full.

Our registered charity name is Devon County Association for the Blind and we were formed in 1925. In 2011 we adopted the new working name of Devon in Sight.

Throughout our history we have worked to provide practical help to people who are blind or partially sighted across the county. We have journeyed with individuals over the years as they have learned to live with acquired sight loss and we have often become friends in the process.

Much has changed since 1925. Sight testing, diagnosis and clinical treatments for sight conditions have been transformed, but the experience of living with sight loss can still be traumatic. Our aim is to support you, the people you live with and other professionals by providing impartial advice and support on a whole range of issues. If we don’t know the answer we probably know someone who does!
