Outlook Nebraska Sponsors Vision Resource Fair

April 6 @ 5:00 am - April 7 @ 11:00 am

Get answers to your questions about vision loss at Vision Resource Fair, sponsored by Outlook Nebraska (outlookne.org), on April 6 and 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Baxter Arena. This free event features more than 20 exhibitors providing information about managing eye conditions; living independently; enjoying social, cultural, and recreational activities; working or returning to work; getting around town; using digital eyewear and other new technology; and handling stress, change, and emotional health.

Conditions such as diabetes, glaucoma, and aged-related macular degeneration are increasing the odds of severe vision loss. As their sight declines, individuals and those who support them—including friends, family members, and employers—have more questions and concerns about the effects on work, social, and daily activities.

Held in conjunction with Omaha’s Health Expo, the Vision Resource Fair provides a single location for learning about community resources to help those experiencing vision loss. Free vision screenings for all ages will be offered, courtesy of Omaha Lions Clubs—a great opportunity for children, parents, and grandparents to learn about eye health together.

As a primary sponsor of the Vision Resource Fair, Outlook Nebraska is offering complimentary tickets, available for download at outlookne.org/resourcefair. When entering Baxter Arena’s main entrance, let Health Expo staff know you are there for the Vision Resource Fair to receive free admission.

Outlook Nebraska is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to positively impacting everyone who is blind and visually impaired. Outlook Nebraska directly employs blind and visually impaired individuals in its paper products converting facility and contact center.
