What's On

A round up of events that are on offer in and around London or online.

Why not join a Managing Sight Loss session?

At London Vision we’ve been hosting Managing Sight Loss session since the summer of 2020 our sessions are held on Zoom and we do our best to ensure everyone can join in.

The content of these sessions explains 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 also address the benefits of being registered as blind or partially sighted, introduce you to assistive technology and advise on how to get out and about with confidence. Most importantly, the sessions are an opportunity to hear from you and other participants, as well as any friends and family you would like to join.

If you’d like to join one of the sessions listed below, please drop a line to  [email protected] or call 020 3761 3651. Your friends and family are most welcome.
