There are many different strategies used by people who are blind or have low vision that assist with enhancing their independence and safety at home and in the community.

Daily activities can be modified and different techniques used to enable a person with vision loss to participate in activities that are important to them.

Two of the most significant impacts on daily life as a result of vision loss are increased difficulty with reading and writing.

With the use of various technology such as magnifiers, correct lighting or screen readers, most parts of life can still be accessible for you. Technology provides all sorts of useful tools to stay organised, keep in touch, get things done, browse the internet, relax with a book and more. This includes using their phone independently. And mobile phones are increasingly becoming more usable.

Increased Braille signage also helps to enhance the independence for the vision impaired.
