An­drew Cole­man from Gal­loway’s said: “I would en­cour­age any­one who is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing sight loss or any­one who knows some­body who might ben­e­fit from these tech­nolo­gies to come along and see what’s on of­fer.

“There will be lots of op­por­tu­ni­ties to try out all the lat­est kit and we’ve found that hav­ing ac­cess to the right tech­nol­ogy can make a real dif­fer­ence to visu­ally im­paired peo­ple.

“There is also a chance to get gen­eral in­for­ma­tion about the Gal­loway’s tech­nol­ogy services on of­fer.
