More and more people over age 45 have significant vision loss. That means there’s a good chance someone at your holiday gathering may have deteriorating eyesight that can’t be improved by wearing glasses.

If you’re hosting someone with vision loss, there are easy and subtle things you can do to provide a low-vision-friendly holiday gathering.
