We’re here to support you through all the stages and severity of sight loss. People lose their sight for a wide variety of reasons, including age related conditions, genetic conditions and eye-health problems. However, losing your sight does not necessarily mean losing your independence, nor does it mean that you need to struggle alone or lose contact with people.
BISS is commissioned by Buckinghamshire Council and provides a wide range of support to children and adults with sight, hearing, and dual sensory loss including enablement and habilitation services; equipment provision; information and advice; and registration of sensory loss.
The focus of this year’s UK Disability History Month is Children and Youth. To quote from UKDHM’s Website:
‘This Autumn 2023 UKDHM focusses on the Experience of Disablement amongst children and young people in the past, now and what is needed for the future.’
The Festive Season for most, is a time for celebration and an opportunity to be surrounded by loved ones. It can also be a very difficult time for people living with sight-loss.
Vision loss can be extremely isolating and difficult to deal with and often leads to loss in confidence.
This is exactly the situation Adrian was in before he received the support he needed from BucksVision. He now has a positive outlook for the future and wants to share his story in the hope of helping others.Read More
