New Skills for Seeing

Devon in Sight is partnering with the Macular Society to offer training in new skills for seeing which can help people with central vision loss make the most of their remaining peripheral vision.

We have trained volunteers and staff who can help you learn about:

  • How Lighting can help you
  • How to use Magnification properly
  • Eccentric Viewing to help with recognising faces and reading
  • Steady Eye Technique to improve reading speed

Practising these skills can help you with daily activities like reading, watching television, hobbies, personal care and getting about.  People often say that they feel more confident and have more control over their lives.

Appointments are available at our Topsham Resource Centre and Jasmyn House Community Hub Paignton free of charge.
