Shining the Spotlight on Poor Sight - Manchester

Exhibition showcases latest products and services for people experiencing sight loss issues.

Failing sight is a widespread side-effect of getting older, yet most people affected have very little help managing their deteriorating condition. Many will accept their failing sight as ‘one of those things’. However, there are a number of products and services available that can significantly improve the ability to enjoy life and live independently.

Sight Village is the UK’s biggest and best exhibition for people who are blind, visually impaired or suffering from failing sight. Free to attend, the exhibition has a wide range of exhibitors ranging from organisations selling specialist equipment to theatre groups – and everything in between.
