Virginia Mason were represented.  There were ongoing tours of Sight Connection’s programs.  Lots of activity at the silent auction tables especially for the fresh Copper River filleted sockeyes thanks to Clinic Coordinator

Emily Kallander.

Sight Connection staffed an informational booth at the Puyallup for the first time.  Lots of fairgoers stopped.  Many with visual problems themselves or knew someone who would benefit from our services.  Thanks to social worker Jeffrey for organizing all of this.  Thanks to the staff for their time in the booth.  Go Team.

Another successful opportunity to spread the word about our unique programs and services!


Eye Safety with Smokey Air

By Uncategorized | No Comments

It’s not just our lungs that get affected by all this lingering smoke.  Our eyes’ retina can be compromised with direct viewing of the sun, according to an interview of Dr. Van Gelder of the UW Eye Institute on KUOW this morning. We know the sun looks pretty spectacular and it’s tempting to gaze but in doing so you could be adversely affecting the quality of your eyes.

And remember to keep wearing your hats and other protective coverings even though visibility is poor.  The sun’s rays are still powerful even if you can’t see them.




WA State Captioned Telephone Program

By Uncategorized | No Comments

For those who are both hearing and visually impaired using the phone can be very difficult.  Getting to the phone and operating the phone can be harder on top of this if one has had a stroke or has COPD or another disabling medical condition. 

If you are  on a fixed income or enrolled with DSHS, the CapTel program with WA State provides an accessible phone for dually impaired individuals.  You do not need Internet access.
