Low Vision presentation-Patty White and Ken Twergo

Low Vision presentation-Patty White and Ken Twergo - Touchmark Portland - Thu Jan 10 at 3:00PM 
Our presentations give residents an overview of assistive devices used by people who are coping with age-related vision loss. We will bring for people to learn about and try different strengths of lighted magnifiers, from weak to quite strong. We talk about specific ways to hold and use them, including how they interact with prescription eyewear. We bring for people to try different electronic magnifiers, which some people find easier to use. These include portable and table top aids. There is a new generation of wearable vision aids that people may be hearing about on the news, from family, and through social media. We will demonstrate how some of these devices work. There are also text-to-speech capabilities in some of this equipment. Our hope is that these presentations stimulate conversation and questions. They are a good opportunity for you to gather the beginnings of a peer support group, if one does not now exist. Some residents are comforted knowing they are not alone with their eyesight challenges.  Patton Room Portland OR - http://www.touchmarkportland.com/
