In cases of sight loss that are more permanent, you compensation can help you towards adapting your home so that it is more accessible for you, and also can assist you with paying your expenses and household bills if you are unable to work. Compensation can also help to pay those who have been caring for you at a time when you were at your most vulnerable and dependent.
