Family, Friends, and Carers

There are a number of resources available for family, friends and carers of people with vision loss.

Finding out a person you love has a visual impairment can be as overwhelming and distressing for partners, family and friends as it is for the patient.

After the initial shock of “why her?” you will probably then wonder “what can I do?”
