    I can imagine being new to sight loss might have brought up some feelings and questions. If you need to talk things through, the community is always here for you. We have a category for discussions relating to visual and hearing impairments that you might like to check out, too. 

    How are you doing today? Do you have any plans for the weekend?

    Hi @Teresa44 and welcome to the community! Sight loss can be challenging, but there is so much available nowadays to help you adapt. Have you been recommended anything so far?
