Vision Education

Hey friends! We want to tell you about an exciting and fun opportunity to learn about low vision and maintaining healthy vision at any stage. Vision loss affects many people at all stages of their lives but it does not need to be death sentence. We here at vision dynamics understand and have a light-hearted but successful approach to managing your eye condition. Not only are we knowledgeable but we can also relate because some of us are visually impaired our selves. So sharpen your minds bring a smile and mark your calendars for classes that will inspire and inform. These 2 one session classes are available to those who are struggling with their vision or family members and friends who would like to learn more.
The dates for these classes are as follows
1st Class:
When: Wednesday October 5Th from 7pm to 9pm
Where: Vision Dynamics

Cheshire, CT 06410
Course Name: What is low vision and do I have it?
Description: This one time workshop will discuss changing vision and when it becomes low vision. The staff at Vision Dynamics along with a low vision specialist will explain what low vision is and how it can be helped. Many people with Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopothy, Glaucoma or even Cataracts aren't aware of what their condition is or how it will impact their life. Others are just having a little trouble reading the newspaper and could use some help. This program will talk about these conditions and what services and tools are available to help keep your independence and a quality of life. Join us for an evening of hope and laughter as we "Learn to see again".
