We have a new FREE course: Orientation and Mobility for those Who Have Multiple Health Impairments. Orientation and mobility services are essential for individuals who are blind or have severely reduced vision.
There are lots of Talking Books or audiobooks available to help you better adjust to and cope with your vision loss. You can find books about your visual condition and biographies about people just like you who have gone through similar vision loss experience and learned how to live independently, be productive, and enjoy life—otherwise, they would not have a book. You can ask the librarian to help you find some, or use the digital online options search by visual impairment or the specific eye condition.
Consider taking our course Diabetes and Vision Impairment
