Those who experience vision loss can continue to undertake most activities and everyday tasks by adapting the way they do things, modifying their environment and using equipment designed to help.

Blind Foundation clients and staff contributed to this Handy Hints document. Their suggestions should help make life easier so you can keep doing things safely while remaining independent and in control.

The extent to which these hints can help you will depend on your eye condition and on how much sight you have. You will have to use your own judgement to decide what is best for you but if you need any help, please contact the Blind Foundation on 0800 24 33 33.
