Sight City, the most important event in the world related to vision loss assistive technology, held in Frankfurt, Germany, from May 3d. to the 5th.

3 intense and stimulating days receiving at our booth hundreds of people from all continents.

We feel grateful to all those visitors and friends who support and trust in our work.

We want to thank all of you and of course the organization as well, to give us the opportunity to participate in this important event.

Since 2006 and within the scope of SightCity, ACTO e. V. has organized an on-going lecture and discussion program, the “SightCity Forum”, which takes place on all three days of the event.

Here, experts and concerned persons share their knowledge of recent scientific and medical developments as well as information about social legislation in the field of low vision with those interested. The daily patient symposia with general discussions including the latest research findings on diagnosis and therapy have also generated a huge response among the participants. After these symposia, concerned persons and their relatives welcome the opportunity to ask questions.

The self-help organizations “PRO RETINA Germany e. V.”, the German Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired “(DBSV) e. V.” as well as vocational training institutes have all taken an integral part in conceiving the forum.
