"The Sight Loss MOT was fantastic because it allowed me to talk about how I felt and how I was going to move forward."

 

Glenn from East Devon

"Since engaging with Devon in Sight, I have gained a huge amount of confidence to carry on with my life."

 

John from Mid Devon

"Devon in Sight recommended that the Apple Watch would be really easy for me to see and it helps me in school to tell the time because the numbers are really big."

 

Georgia from Exeter

"I thought I wouldn't be able to see trees or flowers or the sea; I wouldn't be able to cook; do my garden or read or watch television; so what was the point of living!

Devon in Sight helped me through that very bad period."

Calendar of Events

Please Note that we have had to change the telephone number to join our Devon in Sight Telephone Speaker Events.

We were made aware on the reopening of Devon in Sight after the Christmas Break, that our group call platform had moved their phone line contract to a new provider that was able to meet their capacity needs.  It was regrettable that we received this information after we had published and circulated our December 2020 Devon in Sight bulletin as the information within regarding the phone numbers is now incorrect.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused you, but this situation was out of our control.

For your information the new dial in number is as follows

New Telephone number: 0330 606 1118 

The Pin number remains the same is 473 425
