Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

How the AFB Center on Vision Loss Helps Family & Friends

The American Foundation for the Blind Center on Vision Loss staff and volunteers are uniquely equipped to meet the needs of people experiencing vision loss as well as their family and friends through hands-on demonstration of products and techniques displayed in Esther's Place, our demonstration model home.

Whether you are a parent of a baby with congenital cataracts or the grandchild of a senior citizen with glaucoma, we can answer your questions or show you ways to help your loved one.

When you live far away from your mom or dad and they call with the news that they have been diagnosed with macular degeneration, you will most likely feel the need to gather information and resources to begin to assist them. The Center is a great place to start. You can visit the Center, with or without your family member or friend, and gather ideas to help your loved one to live as independently as possible and to connect with the service providers they need.

If you do not live in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, you can call (214) 352-7222 or e-mail to ask questions and we will be happy to send you helpful information.

Our mission is expanding possibilities for people with vision loss and helping family and friends to better understand their role in achieving that goal.
