Keith Gordon of the CNIB has co-authored a fascinating study into how many people could potentially receive- or require- vision rehabilitation around New Zealand.

It will be an interesting read for anyone planning on attending the Blind Foundation’s free lunchtime lecture at the Retina International World Congress.

The free lecture includes speakers from Vision Australia and CNIB, and will take a look at how government policy affects healthcare practice in the field of vision rehabilitation.
