Living Well with Sight Loss

Across Greater Manchester

Our Living Well with Sight Loss course is free to attend and aims to give you information and advice about living with your sight loss.

As well as finding out more about your eye condition and talking to other people experiencing the same issues as you, we will discuss the procedures at the eye hospital and the benefits of registration.

We regularly have guest speakers who may include Guide Dogs, Rehabilitation teams, Welfare Rights teams, the police, the fire service and staff from the Eye Hospital. Plus we will demonstrate specialist aids and equipment.
