Topic: Travel Without Trouble (In Spite of Low Vision)
Now that our world is opening up a bit, let’s talk about getting out and around. Whether that means a trip to the local shopping center or a journey across the country, it might be helpful to share some tips about ways we can travel safely and comfortably. These suggestions come from a wide variety of sources, from experts in the field to experienced blind and low vision travelers themselves.
We will have in-person guests at our August 24 meeting. The Outreach Team from the Cleveland Sight Center will join us on August 24 at 1:00 p.m. at the Ehrnfelt Senior Center. They will present valuable information for anyone who is coping with low vision or has a family member dealing with vision loss. They will provide tips, tools, and techniques for continuing daily activities with low vision and will bring along a variety of hands-on tools that you can explore. They will provide information about living and thriving with low vision, about the Cleveland Sight Center’s services, and about the next step to take after a vision loss diagnosis.
