Vision Expert Volunteers
Vision specialists visit during the 5th session of a workshop. They lead an interactive discussion on the influence of vision on balance and the risk of falling and refer participants to available community services. For more information about volunteering as a vision guest expert, please contact Becky Afzali, Volunteer Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (651) 204-0904.

About Stepping On
“During presentations with Stepping On, I review the most common causes of age-related vision loss, and symptoms which may indicate the need to see an eye doctor. I address some relatively simple ways which can help older adults avoid falls and live more confidently with vision loss.
The best thing about working with Stepping On is engaging people who want to learn something new. I bring a lot of ideas and information with me when I present, but it’s the open dialogue and willingness to share that makes the biggest impact and helps people learn to be safer.”
-Mark Dahlberg, Community Service Specialist at Vision Loss Resources
