Seit 1987 hat der DVBS neben seinen berufs- und ausbildungsbezogenen Fachgruppen auch eine Seniorengruppe. Sie will vor allem dazu beitragen, dass auch Sehgeschädigte erfolgreich und kompetent älter werden und weiterhin ein sinnerfülltes Leben führen können. Dazu will sie auch Wissenschaftler veranlassen, sich mehr als bisher mit den Folgen von Sehverlust im Alter zu befassen. Der Dialog mit ihnen, den die Gruppe seit 1990 führt, hat in der eingangs genannten Konferenz ihren einstweiligen Höhepunkt gefunden.
