Open Sight is the largest charitable organisation in Hampshire working with people who have, or who are at risk of developing sight loss. Based in Eastleigh, Open Sight has provided uninterrupted support to the blind and partially sighted community of Hampshire since 1922.

Our mission is to support people with sight impairment or who are at risk of sight loss to achieve their personal goals, remain independent and live a full life. We work with you, your family, colleagues and friends in coping with both the practical and the emotional issues arising from your sight loss.
