Vision helps make lives easier

COFFS Coast residents who have low or impaired vision can test-drive the latest aids now available.

The gadgets, designed to help vision impaired people get around safely, confidently and independently, will be showcased on Wednesday from 9.30am to 2.30pm at the Guide Dogs Coffs Harbour office in Moonee Street.

“There is a growing number of people experiencing vision problems but unfortunately not many are aware of the diverse range of services and tools available to help them move around safely and independently in their communities,” said Jeremy Hill, regional manager for Guide Dogs.
