Why it matters to you
Your clients, patients, and consumers are aging. In the next 20 years, the number of Minnesotans over age 65 will nearly double, and older adults will make up a fifth of our population, leading to a sharp rise in those with age-related eye conditions. Are you ready serve them to the best of your ability? We’re here to help!
Vision Loss Resources is the leading resource in the Twin Cities that trains, supports, and educates adults who are visually impaired. We offer adaptive living tools and emotional support to create greater independence for those with vision loss—and their caregivers and families.
We also provide free informational presentations for caregivers, older adults, BIPOC communities, and eye care professionals.
