Low Vision Services

Image of man using a magnifying glassGuide Dogs NSW/ACT's Low Vision Services teach people with impaired vision how to use their residual vision or a low-vision aid in everyday situations.

Our Orientation and Mobility Instructors develop training programs that are tailored to the specific needs of each person. This can include:

  • Provision of on-site advice about how to cross roads safely and move through crowded areas;
  • Training to learn the effective use of your residual vision or a low-vision aid;
  • Training in specific visual skills, such as scanning;
  • Advice on your home environment, such as effective lighting.

The training can occur anywhere - at home, in the office, or any other environment that suits the client. As with all our services, low-vision training is provided free of charge.
