LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A dark world became a little brighter for those dealing with blindness or who have impaired vision.

A free workshop Sunday was hosted by the local chapter of the National Federation of the Blind, held at the First Christian Church on Second Avenue in Lake Charles.

They call it sensational, sensory Sunday.

Families were invited to find out about assistance available at no-cost for those dealing with any form of blindness.

"It's very easy to feel like you're alone in the world when you have impaired vision or when you're blind," said chapter President Cathy Miller. "It's very easy to feel like, nobody else knows what you're going through."

The workshop also featured items to help the vision-impaired, like large-print calendars and talking clocks.
