Participants are encouraged to ask questions and tell their own stories of overcoming vision loss or of caring for someone dear to them who suffers from vision loss. The role of the community support group will be discussed and inspirational stories told about making the personal adjustment to vision loss. Some visual aids for folks with low vision such as a magnifier, a white support cane or the talking book player for the blind will be demonstrated. All Sight Connection services, its store, its clinic and outreach services will be reviewed.
