NORTH Wales Welsh Conservative AM and Shadow Minister for Social Justice and Equality, Mark Isherwood, has helped launch a new campaign.
The idea is to highlight why many blind and partially sighted people in Wales are let down by lack of services after being diagnosed with sight loss.
According to Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, the status and funding of services to rehabilitate and support people with sight loss has improved little since the early 1990s.
Mr Isherwood said: “It is important we highlight the lack of services and advice in North Wales, especially for those who experience sudden sight loss.
“It is crucial we improve support services in order to improve the quality of life for many blind and partially sighted people.”
Guide Dogs, supported by Wales Council for the Blind and the Royal National Institute for Blind People in Wales (RNIB Cymru), wants people with sight loss to have greater participation in a more inclusive society.
