Info session for people with low or impaired vision

DESKTOP and portable electronic magnifiers will be among the products on show for people with low or impaired vision at the Halcro Street Community Centre on Monday, November 11, at 1pm.

Fraser Coast Regional Council seniors project officer Julie de Waard said said local agent for Quantum Technology Margaret Vickers would be holding an information session and demonstration of the technology available.

 She said the afternoon would be interesting for residents who faced challenges with vision impairments.

"These devices can open up a whole new world for people with low or no vision," Ms de Waard said.

"It can offer them a solution to be able to enjoy daily and recreational activities such as reading the paper or books, looking at photos or working at the computer."

Light refreshments will be served.

To book, phone the Halcro Street Community Centre on 4194 2441 or Margaret Vickers on 4124 1883.
