Vista - Living with Sight Loss

** As you know we are currently in unprecedented times. Our head office staff are working from home and all of Vista's shops are closed. Only essential staff and visitors will be allowed in our homes.
The DeafBlind team are still providing essential 1:1 support for the people they work with. For any queries, please contact us on 0116 249 8839. **

If you’re newly diagnosed or coming to terms with your sight loss, our Living with Sight Loss course can provide hands on practical, social and emotional support to help you develop the confidence to cope.

Our qualified rehabilitation specialists will address the emotional impact of sight loss and teach you useful strategies to help with the journey ahead. Some of the topics you will cover include:

  • Emotional wellbeing
  • Practical skills for everyday life
  • Maximising your remaining visio
  • Assistive technology
  • Lighting and colour contrast
  • Keeping safe when out and about

You will be part of a small, supportive group of people who understand and can share experiences. There will be an opportunity to find out about more about Vista’s services, including specialist training and support available to you.
