Where to Start: a Low Vision Assessment
Contact State Services for the Blind (SSB) at (651) 539-2373 and let them know you would like a low vision assessment. They will evaluate the impact of your vision loss and make personalized recommendations to help you keep doing the things you love — from reading the newspaper to cooking for yourself and much more. Your loved ones are welcome to participate. Ask for Independent Living Skills (ILS) training with us at VLR.

Linda, whose mother is a Vision Loss Resources client
What my mother likes is that Vision Loss Resources groups and events are very stimulating. It’s not just passing time. It’s about learning something, doing something and meeting people.
