Our Mission is to enable visually impaired people to be active members of their community and to provide education and services to prevent vision loss.
Our Services Include:
- Low Vision Rehabilitation
- Pre-School Vision Screenings
- Advocacy and Education
Knowing more about how vision changes as you grow older and how to detect, treat and safeguard your sight can help you deal with any problems you may experience. Talk to your doctor about your eyes and your vision. Read brochures that are available from your eye doctor, library or hospital or the Chautauqua Blind Association to learn more about your eyes and aging.
If you have low vision, vision rehabilitation can help you live more safely and independently. Low vision means that, even with standard glasses, contact lenses, medicine, or surgery, your vision interferes with your ability to perform everyday activities. Reading, shopping, cooking, seeing the TV, and writing can seem challenging.
