Accompaniment and mentoring

As we explain here we believe that no person should face in solitude from the doubts raised by a new situation of visual impairment.

Our experience has been to face the acceptance and adaptation to the visual disability without having any person of reference who have experienced a similar situation with whom to share the many concerns that arise. We want to offer our history, learning and support to those new people who are victims or those affected for loneliness is not another problem added in this process.

Mutual aid groups (GAMs) are a tool to support proven effectiveness in other diseases that have no local analog in the field of visual impairment. Our model is of accompaniment and mentoring, offering to affected people a mentor of reference in the figure of a Vountari/to that has experienced an experience and similar affection with whom to stay and share the worries.

If you are in a situation of these, contact us and we will contact you with a suitable mentor with whom you remain. The mentor will approach where you go best, you do not need to scroll anywhere, or pay nothing for it.

Human support has no cost or price.

Scientific research

More than 95% of the causes of loss of vision are due to malfunction, disease or eye lesions. However, the visual function is a completely cerebral capacity, being the eye “only” a complex organ that collects and transmits information. Our goal is to look for solutions for this problem, we believe that nobody should stay without light at home just because the light bulbs don’t work. The Point Of View award will be a first step in this direction, in order to reinforce this line of invetigación that is active at international level but where there are no specific projects at national and local level.

We believe in science as the engine of transformation, we want to build a world where blindness is a bad curable. Punt de Vista is an entity that, based on the involvement of people affected by loss of vision of different levels and in collaboration with professionals in the sector, wants to become a transversal platform where we together make this beautiful project a reality. For all of this we will drive from 2020 the “Point of View” award at the Annual ARVO Association convention in the United States.
