Adapting to Sight Loss

Everyone responds differently to the news that they have sight impairment or severe sight impairment.

For some it can take a while to adjust to this challenge, whilst others find it easier to cope with the changes it brings to their life.

Some of the areas which may be of concern might include:

  • Getting out and about
  • Reading and writing
  • Telephone calls
  • Gardening
  • Television and radio
  • Managing in your home
