Each year, the Commission for the Blind helps hundreds of men and women who are legally blind remain independent within their homes and communities. The commission accomplishes this goal by providing many valuable services, including:
For most services, eligibility is based on meeting the legal definition of blindness: having a central visual acuity of 20/200 in the better eye with best corrective lens or a visual field of 20 degrees or less. Individuals with a severe visual disability that will result in legal blindness also are eligible for services. Legal blindness must be verified by an acceptable eye examination.
Since no two individuals are alike, we work with you to provide a personalized experience. We ensure your concerns are addressed and together we create a designed to achieve social and economic independence.
These services are made available with state and federal funding. There is no charge to consumers for services.
