Live, Work and Play Well with Vision Loss

Experiencing vision loss is difficult and life changing. It doesn't mean you have to stop doing the things you do on a daily basis or hope to do in the future. A visit to our low vision clinic can help you maximize your remaining sight. You will discuss your visual needs with our low vision therapist and try out a variety of magnifiers and other devices to find what works best for you.

Announcing A New Program ....

that educates people about how to approach a blind person in order to provide high quality customer service and to interact respectfully with people who experience sight loss.  The Blindness Sensitivity Training Program is a one hour presentation that discusses the best practices for interacting with people who are blind.  This program also includes simulation training of Sighted Guide Technique which is the best way to assist somebody who is blind that needs help navigating through various community settings including public areas, businesses or mass transit systems.
