It is being held to mark World Sight Day on October 10 and will be held at the Community Resource Centre in Chargeable Lane in Plaistow from 11.30am to 3.30pm.
Its aim is to raise awareness of visual impairment, the support available to the people it affects and the rehabilitation of visually impaired people.
Residents will be given the opportunity to see an optician, pick up some information on preventing sight loss and have their questions and answered.
