'Britain's hospitals do all they can to prevent blindness by guarding each child against eye trouble as soon as it is born. But there must always be some blind children, and for the Britain has special homes, where they are educated and taught to find their way about the world. Later they go on to higher schools, training themselves for professions, or even for a university career. More difficult is the problem of those who loose their sight later in life. They too are given special care and training, and are encouraged to learn simple trades, dispelling darkness with careers of interest and usefulness.' [1]
