Living Well with Vision Loss Event

August 28, 2010

The LWVL Seminar was a community-based effort with a large number of local, state, and national organizations coming together to bring hope and resources to people living with visual impairment. The seminar was directed to adults in the 55+ range with vision loss, macular degeneration, etc. to inform them of the resources available to them and to address the grieving process of losing their vision. Families of those who are suffering with eye diseases were also invited to attend. The seminar was also directed to eye care professionals in the area who do not know where to send their patients/advice to give them after they have been given the diagnosis of an untreatable condition. DARS/Prevent Blindness will present to them ways that their patients can mark household appliances, etc. and give them other resources so that their patients have more information on living with their disease. NTERI was proud to collaborate with DARS and Prevent Blindness to make this seminar a great success!
