Low Vision Centre
Coming to term with sight loss is not easy. For many people, being told that they have a sight problem causes a range of emotions. There are feelings of panic, anger, frustration and a loss of confidence. There is also the fear of losing their independence.

We can also provide Sight Awareness Training by our team based in the Low Vision Centre.
