London Vision website

London Vision hosts  a variety of support groups and sessions sessions over the telephone, computer and in face-to-face groups to help people who are adjusting to life with sight loss.

Managing Sight Loss

The content of these sessions explain where to get help and advice, how to contact your local sensory team and how to explore simple solutions to everyday living with sight loss. The sessions address the benefits of being registered as blind or partially sighted, introduce you to assistive technology and advise on how to get out and about with confidence. Most importantly, the sessions are an opportunity to hear from you and other participants, and well as any friends and family you would like to join. 

Let's Talk 

London Vision’s Let’s Talk programme groups offer holistic support to blind and partially sighted people through informal talking groups. These groups are based around a range of themes, and are designed to encourage resilience, and wellbeing.

Charles Bonnet Syndrome support group 

London Vision coordinates a Charles Bonnet Syndrome support group over telephone and Zoom. It provides a space for discussion and peer support for those with the condition. Charles Bonnet Syndrome is a syndrome that affects people with deteriorating sight, and it can cause visions and hallucinations. These visions can be benign, perhaps depicting simple patterns, or even flowers, but sometimes they can appear more sinister. People suffering with CBS have reported seeing people dressed in Victorian outfits, bedraggled children, or worse. Some of the images can be terrifying, others mildly annoying. CBS can affect people who have lost some, or all of their eyesight.
