Raising awareness and reducing societal stigma
Vision Forward Association’s speakers provide educational information on common eye diseases, adaptive vision products, and services that are available to the community. The audiences for these presentations are diverse, ranging from school age youth to older adults and civic organizations to corporations.
In addition to educational presentations, our staff bring specialized products for people with vision loss out into various community venues with the Vision Forward Mobile Store.
New Perspectives: Support Series
We also facilitate a New Perspectives: Support Series for individuals experiencing vision loss. The course focuses on strategies and techniques for living successfully with macular degeneration, glaucoma, and other age-related eye conditions. This course may be conducted at retirement communities and community centers when requested.
