Working in partnership with the Macular Society, we teach two techniques to help people with central vision loss use their remaining vision more effectively: eccentric viewing and steady eye strategy.

Eccentric viewing focuses on using your clearest area of vision to help with tasks like reading or recognising people’s faces.

Steady eye strategy helps your ability to read by keeping your eyes still and moving the text through the best part of your vision.

People who learn these skills often say they feel more confident and have more control over their lives.

Whilst these techniques may not work for everybody, everyone can benefit from understanding their own vision better, learning about the benefits of lighting and how to use low vision aids more effectively.

There is no charge for this service.
