Finding Help & Support: Building Your Support Network

Vision loss never has to be faced alone.

For many, these agencies are entryways to support groups, rehabilitation programs, product referrals, and countless other services and resources that provide the makings of a viable support network—the key to independent living.

This page is your gateway to the many support services available to people with vision loss.

This section will be particularly helpful to family and friends of people with vision loss.

Bottom line: whether you are experiencing vision loss, or are close to someone who is, you've got questions. This section is about providing answers.
