Sight Loss Sessions
Since July London Vision has hosted more than 20 sessions exploring the challenges of living with sight loss and the solutions that help overcome the challenges our sessions are friendly and relaxed, and we ensure that everyone has time to talk.
Attendees tell us it makes a huge difference being able to talk to others in similar circumstances.
Each session is themed, and we cover a variety of topics from registration, rights and benefits to sport and leisure. We welcome friends and family and if you’ve never used Zoom we will do our very best to explain how it all works.
If you would like to learn more, get in touch via e-mail email@example.com or call 020 3761 3651. Why not take a look below and pick a session; We look forward to meeting you:
