Second Sense - Beyond Vision Loss

RP Meet Up: Perfect Independence

Saturday, August 10 - 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


You face unique challenges when you are dealing with gradual loss of vision from retinitis pigmentosa and related conditions. When you know that your vision will probably worsen, but don’t know when or how much, the uncertainty 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 is welcome to attend.  Your family and friends are also invited. If you can’t make it in person, feel free to call in on our conference call line at 312-582-2994, conference bridge 301 and pin 1111#.
