Assisting people with vision loss

As part of its National Vision Awareness Campaign, the Guild is offering a new version of its brochure for people who want to learn more about the correct way to interact with a blind or visually impaired person. Entitled "Assisting People with Vision Loss," it is designed to help sighted people understand how to best assist family, friends, colleagues or strangers who may be blind or visually impaired, on the street, at work and in the home.
