Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

How the AFB Center on Vision Loss Serves Architects and Designers

There are multiple ways of helping people who live with limited eyesight to function more safely and effectively in any given environment, and many ideas can be seen in Esther's Place at the American Foundation for the Blind Center on Vision Loss.

We have various types of lighting installed throughout the 1,800 square-foot demonstration model home, as well as examples of texture and color contrast, aging-in-place accommodations, and assistive products that can make a big difference in the life of anyone coping with vision loss.

It doesn't have to be ugly, either. Designers have told us that using color contrast, for example, not only makes things easier to see, but can make the space pleasing to the eye.

Schedule a tour to see for yourself how you can create environments to help your customers live more independently and move about more safely in public venues by calling (214) 352-7222 or emailing We have staff with expertise in vision loss to advise you on your specific projects.
