Low Vision Resources

We are no strangers to low vision assistance as we’ve received help for our son’s vision since he was 3 months old. Without early intervention he would not have come as far as he has and we would not have known how we should have been helping him.

It can be daunting to begin with but there are wonderful organisations out there with the expertise and the kindness to help you and your child. I know because we have been lucky enough to have been beneficiaries ourselves.

If you care for someone with low vision, here are a list of low vision organisations and resources to help you, help them.
