Vision Impairment

  • Vision Loss Resources
    More than 100 years of providing services, skills and support for people with vision loss. Most people with age-related vision loss will not become completely blind. With assistance and training, many adjust well to partial or moderate vision loss. Our Specialists will schedule an in-home assessment and develop a customized plan for managing vision loss to stay safe and independent. Vision Loss Resources provides a supportive community of people also experiencing vision loss. Recreational services are free or have nominal participation fees, and rehabilitation assistance is based on ability to pay. Call us today to find out more about:
    • In-home assessments

    • Social-emotional support – peer mentors, educational, cultural and recreational activities
