More than Meets the Eye

Date: Tuesday, August 25, 2020
Time: 4:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Audience: The community is welcome to join us!


Vision Forward is holding Dining in the Dark at Home virtually this year on Sunday, November 1, at 5:00 pm. Weve created three pre-event sessions called More Than Meets the Eye that are designed to engage our community and help you learn more about our mission prior to November 1. These sessions are brief—about 20 minutes—and each will feature a client who tells a personal story of vision loss in his or her own words.  

We are hosting our first More than Meets the Eye virtual experience on August 25 and hope you can join us.  We will be using this time to connect with you when you might be feeling isolated and disconnected with our mission and the impact of our work. 

You have three opportunities to join us (via Zoom) to hear about how your support impacts people facing vision loss today: Tuesday, August 25 at 4:00 pm, September 22 at 8:30 am, and October 21 at 12:00 pm. Sign up for the one that works best for your schedule here:  

On August 25, you’ll hear from Dee, who lost his vision unexpectedly, on how he was able to rebuild his life and regain his independence.   

Sudden blindness was beyond anything Doyle “Dee” Ward ever imagined when he went in for back surgery. Within a moment of time Dee’s life had changed forever. 

Whether you are new to Vision Forward or have been a supporter for years, you will see a new side of our organization and those we serve. You won’t want to miss this short, yet powerful virtual event.   

We look forward to seeing you for one of our More than Meets the Eye experiences as well as Dining in the Dark!
