About the AFB Center on Vision Loss

The American Foundation for the Blind Center on Vision Loss, located in Dallas, Texas, is a unique part of AFB dedicated to helping the 25 million Americans with vision loss find resources, professional services, and workable solutions to many issues related to living independently. We offer life-changing information on over 500 products and devices that can help you:

  • Read
  • Use a computer
  • Identify medications
  • Use the telephone
  • Move about your home independently and safely

The centerpiece of the AFB Center on Vision Loss is Esther's Place, a fully furnished model home fitted with simple adaptations and products designed to make daily life more manageable for individuals with vision loss.

At this time, The Center and Esther’s Place are going through a transition, and in-person tours have been placed on hold. Take a virtual tour of Esther's Place today to learn about resources and tools available for those with low vision.

For information about resources and services in your area, please contact 800-232-5463 (a toll-free information and referral line now managed by the American Printing House for the Blind).
