Second Sense - Beyond Vision Loss

RP Meet Up: Open discussion

Dealing with gradual loss of vision from retinitis pigmentosa and related conditions, has some unique challenges. Knowing that your vision will probably worsen, but not knowing when or how much, can put wrenches in your life plan. Our RP Meet Up is an opportunity for you to meet and learn from others who are experiencing these same circumstances.

Join us every second Saturday of the month to share your concerns, offer advice to others who may be struggling and discover resources and services to help prepare you for what may lie ahead. Our guest speakers and compassionate conversation will help you with:

  • handling relationships with family,
  • facing transitions in your lifestyle and
  • discovering practical solutions to everyday challenges.

Anyone with RP or related conditions causing gradual vision loss, their family and friends are welcome to attend. If you cannot make it in person, feel free to call in on our conference call line at 312-582-2994, conference bridge 301 and pin 1111#.
