Sight loss can be caused by macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts or diabetic retinopathy. On two Mondays, June 18 and 25th, the Braille Institute will offer the latest information on adapting to visual changes and which assistive devices might be appropriate for individuals. Practical day-to-day applications will be presented such as organizing and identifying money and marking and labeling household items. The importance of staying connected will also be explored: rediscovering the joy of reading, writing and communication. Attendees will learn about resources for getting around town, assistance with orientation and mobility.

According to the Braille Institute, twenty-one percent of people age 65 and over report some form of vision impairment. This represents 7.3 million people. This workshop will address questions related to daily life with low vision. There are many causes of visual impairment and Braille Institute helps people of all ages overcome obstacles caused by low vision.

Braille Institute is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to eliminate barriers to a fulfilling life caused by blindness and severe sight loss. Each year the Institute serves more than 75,000 people, providing an environment of hope and encouragement through integrated educational, social, and recreational programs and through our services, classes, and seminars.

This program is free to all and will take place at Crowell Public Library’s Barth Community Room on two Mondays, June 18 & 25th at 10:30 a.m.
