Vision 101 - Center for the Visually Impaired (CVI) will host a free program focusing on how to live with vision loss for anyone experiencing trouble reading mail or medication labels, using a computer, watching TV or walking safely due to vision loss among other things. Family members, caregivers, healthcare and social service providers, and staff at senior centers and retirement communities are also invited to attend.

The program will feature an overview of vision loss, a discussion of adaptive techniques and devices and a demonstration of Orientation and Mobility techniques for safe travel, inside and outside the home. A social worker will be present to meet with individuals. Featured optical devices from CVI’s VisAbility Store will be available for hands-on-trials and purchase.

Five low vision candidates will be selected for a free Low Vision Evaluation, performed by a trained Low Vision Optometrist. This will be scheduled for a future date, typically within a month.
