New View helps Jessie to read again using her peripheral vision
Jessie started to lose her central vision, and couldn't read her own mail. Then she met Liz at Visibility...
Jessie has Macular Degeneration, which is one of the most common eye conditions in the UK.
She was struggling to read because of her loss of central vision, and she found watching TV was becoming quite difficult too. Jessie came to Visibility after hearing about our New View project, and tutor Liz helped her learn a reading technique called Eccentric Reading which focuses on using your peripheral vision.
Visibility's New View project has been successfully teaching people with central vision loss to read for over 10 years. Eccentric reading isn't a difficult technique to learn but it takes patience, concentration and motivation to develop the skills required to regain the ability to read. If you would like to find out more, and learn the technique like Jessie has, call us today on 0141 332 4632.
“Instead of asking other people all the time to read my mail, or come shopping with me, I can do it all for myself now!”
