National Eye Health Week 2023

As part of National Eye Health Week, our Collaborations & Citizenship Lead and Sarah, QAC's Visual Impairment Training Officer, came together to bring the students a series of workshops to help promote the importance of good eye health.

Topics included what is sight loss, canes and equipment and how to communicate with a visually impaired person. The students were also able to try out a range of simulation glasses to learn how different eye conditions affect your sight.
