Low vision expo is coming to the region this month.

To make it easier for people in regional areas to access the latest low-vision technologies, Guide Dogs NSW/ACT in conjunction with Quantum RLV is running a series of free expos across Northern NSW.

Guide Dogs NSW/ACT Regional Manager, Jeremy Hill, said it was important that people with low vision sought help early to maintain independence and reduce the risk of accidents. The expos will offer visitors the opportunity to test drive low vision aids and equipment.

“It’s important to let the community know there is equipment that can make writing brighter, bolder and easier to read,” he said. This year, Quantum RLV is excited to launch their latest technology, OrCam MyEye, at the expos – a smart camera that clips onto a regular spectacle frame.

An expo will be held in Armidale at the Bowling Club on April 28.
