Low Vision Fair

The Wisconsin Council of the Blind & Visually Impaired invites community members to our Low Vision Fair. The Low Vision Fair will feature 15 vendors and 4-5 educational sessions. Vendors will include the Sharper Vision Store, Wisconsin Talking Book and Braille Library, and the Office for the Blind and Visually Impaired plus others who will showcase products and services. The educational presentations between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., may include topics such as smart home technology, strategies to engage in everyday activities, reading with low vision, and use of lighting, labeling and contrast. Anyone with vision impairment, family, friends or professionals are welcome to attend. There is no cost. Most of all, the Low Vision Fair serves as a space to talk with others who are experiencing vision loss, to discover you are not alone! This outreach event aligns with the Council’s missions to promote the dignity and empowerment of people in Wisconsin who are blind and visually impaired by providing services, advocating legislation and educating the public.
