Studies indicate that the possibility of hip fractures almost doubles if a person has vision loss.

It’s so important to reduce the chance of falling or injury when vision is not optimal. This workshop provides techniques and methods for getting around with vision loss safely, both in- and out-of-doors.

Polly Abbott, our certified vision rehabilitation therapist, shares strategies for:

  • managing problems of depth perception and glare,
  • using sighted guides to maximize safety, and
  • avoiding bumps and bruises with self-protective techniques
