Visually Impaired Support Group

As I said in my last post, I facilitate a support group for the visually impaired. We meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month, and most of the participants are senior citizens. This past Tuesday, a local optometrist spoke briefly and answered questions. He had a lot of information about cataracts, macular degeneration, and other eye inflictions, and participants had a lot of questions. The meeting lasted a little over half an hour.

We won’t meet in November or December because of the closeness of the regular meeting dates to the holidays. In December, those of us who are available will try to get together for lunch. In January, a local ophthalmologist will be available at our meeting to answer questions, and in February, a vendor will demonstrate hand held and desktop magnifiers.
