The National Council for the Blind of Ireland stepped into a virtual reality at this year Ploughing Championship. NCBI took a stand in partnership with Bayer.
Our Virtual Reality headsets took people through a two-three minute perspective of someone receiving treatment for diabetic retinopathy. This gave them a short glimpse into the life of a person with sight loss.
We also had information about NCBI’s work, services, our mission and graphics on the main causes of sight loss, information on eye health and living with sight loss.
