To provide individualized support and tools to navigate the visual world.
A world where the quality of one’s sight does not determine the quality of one’s life.
WHO WE ARE
We are a team of professionals dedicated to providing the support and tools needed to navigate the visual world. Our team of optometrists, vision rehabilitation therapists, teachers, employment specialists and other staff assess one’s needs with empathy and professionalism, seeking to help each individual understand his or her unique vision-related challenges and the resources available to them.
WHY WE ARE HERE
We live in a world that is designed for those with clear vision, creating challenges for those with less than clear vision. These challenges can be intimidating, isolating, and seemingly unfair, but, we believe the quality of one’s sight should not determine the quality of one’s life. Our mission is to provide support and tools to overcome sight challenges that exist in the visual world.
WHAT WE DO
We assess each individual’s specific needs, seeking to understand their vision-related challenges and goals. We then create an individualized plan to support them in reaching those goals through training on a variety of tools and techniques. We educate the community about the resources and opportunities available for those with less than clear vision, while also advocating for community awareness in a world designed for those with clear vision.

- Vision exams and assessments
- Recommendations and instruction on low vision aids and assistive technology
- Training on tools and techniques
- Education and support to children and families
