Being told you have sight loss can be scary and confusing for both you and your friends and family. But talking to people in a similar situation can really help. London Vision is now hosting Sight Loss: What You Need to Know sessions both over the telephone and computer to help people who are adjusting to life with sight loss.

The content of these sessions will explain where to get help and advice, and how to contact your local sensory team and how to explore simple solutions to everyday living with sight loss. The sessions will also address the benefits of being registered as being blind or partially sighted, will introduce you to assistive technology and advise on how to get out and about with confidence. Most importantly, the sessions will be an opportunity to hear from you and other participants, as well as any friends and family you would like to join. 

All the sessions will be informal and will be followed up with a phone call to answer any additional questions. The content is largely the same as the Living with Sight Loss course - visit this page to learn more about specific areas covered. 

Upcoming sessions

We will repeat sessions three times through the week on different days - morning, afternoon, and early evening, providing sessions to suit all.
