Sight loss can take away independence and confidence, and leave those affected isolated. Berkshire Vision supports hundreds of blind and partially sighted children and adults across the county, helping them to live their lives to the full.

  • Increasing your confidence: Techniques to support yourself
  • Managing change: How to deal with life changes

  • Planning your future: Setting realistic goals in the short and long term
