**Special COVID-19 update: the Community Low Vision Centers are open by appointment only – find the number to call to set up appointments here. Televisit appointments are available.

When you arrive for your appointment, call your location to alert reception you’ve arrived. Reception will call you back when the Low Vision team is ready to serve you. Face masks are required, and temperature check will be performed at the door. Only two people are permitted for each appointment. If you’re not feeling well, cancel your appointment by phone.

The CLVC demo equipment and common spaces are being sanitized between customers and we’re increasing the frequency of restroom cleaning. 

If you have questions or concerns you’d like to discuss before booking an appointment, please call your location and we’d be happy to talk them through with you.


Helping You Connect, Adapt and Thrive as Your Vision Changes

If you’re having problems with your eyesight, and tools like glasses or contacts no longer help, there’s a world of products and support created just for you: the Community Low Vision Centers.

Personal help from people who’ve been there.

Everybody at the Community Low Vision Centers has some type of low vision, and so do many of our colleagues at our parent organization, IFB Solutions.

Because we’ve walked in your shoes, we bring first-hand experience to your questions and concerns and our recommendations.

We know how little things can make a difference—like adhesive “bumps” to direct you to the right setting on a flat-screen washer control—and how lighting, contrast, and filters can transform daily activities like reading mail and watching TV. We’ve organized online communities for everything from specific eye conditions to new innovations and technologies.

Most importantly, we’ve all experienced the frustration of slowly losing sight and independence ourselves. We know what you’re going through—and we know how much better things can be with the right tools and support.

We’re ready to help you get started.

You could order adaptive devices through a website. But you won’t get the hands-on experience of our product demos and personalized guidance, plus a real person to call if you have questions.

And who has time for that? Your life is waiting—and so is our low vision community.
