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.

Summer Program for Skills Enhancement and
Career Preparation for Youth
June 1– July 5, 2018
During the summer of 2018, the Alaska Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired will be offering a special work transition program for youth to explore career and employment options through community service, job shadowing and college exploration. Participants will also be able to increase their job skills through instruction in several vital career oriented areas.
Because blindness can often create a sense of separateness from peers, this summer program will help to foster socialization along with instruction and training in blindness skills to increase self-reliance and independence.
