Look Out, Marcus!
Marcus has central vision loss and he loves to play soccer.
Last holidays he went to camp at Guide Dogs Victoria. There he made friends with Alex who has tunnel vision and Sally who has blurry vision.
Find out more about low vision as you meet Marcus and his friends.
To Gina Schmidt, for challenging us to walk the extra mile.
