Visually Impaired Program (VIP)

Services for older adults who are blind or visually impaired.

As eyesight deteriorates and day to day tasks become more difficult, many seniors are forced to give up hobbies they love as well as their independence in accomplishing daily tasks. 

Visually Impaired Program (VIP) Specialists help you assess your personal needs and discover ways to meet them using low vision skills training, adaptive equipment and alternate techniques that allow you to adjust to vision loss and remain independent.
