Equipment and Information Days (Next one in Portsmouth)
Open Sight’s Equipment and Information Days are run several times a year and are a great opportunity to come along and look at different magnification and equipment and find out about other services that can support you in your local area.
Open Sight staff will be demonstrating equipment and giving advice on every day living aids including ‘bumpons’ and talking watches. Our knowledgeable staff will be on hand to give top tips on how to manage your sight loss and can carry out a low vision assessment. Small things can really make a difference to someone’s life.
Past exhibitors have included:
- Professional Vision
