Free DVD Living with failing Sight
Designed for organisations to issue to people who have recently discovered they have failing sight which cannot be restored. It contains information about the support available from a range of sources, and includes many practical solutions to daily tasks. It also recognises the emotional impact of sight loss, and allows those who have had to face up to similar challenges to share their ideas about how to continue life in a meaningful way.
The DVD lasts 90 minutes and contains special features to allow it to be watched or listened to by people with all levels of vision, as well as those who are ‘carers’. It is regularly issued by many eye clinics and local voluntary groups to people whose sight loss is recent.
