On August 9, the Council hosted a Low Vision Fair in Eau Claire. The Council wishes to thank the following speakers, vendors and sponsors, who made the fair possible.

“I highly recommend attending a low vision fair,” says Wanda, who attended with her daughter. “I learned so much about products, resources and programs available. Talking with others who are also losing their vision was encouraging. I met people in the Eau Claire County Low Vision Support Group and plan to get involved with them in the future. I also want to get a white cane. The people at the fair were wonderful and have expanded my ideas of what is possible for me.”
