Bainbridge Island Visually Impaired Persons Support Group

We provide education, support, and encouragement to blind and low-vision persons, thereby helping them cope with daily challenges: for example, minimizing household hazards, simplifying food preparation, improving reading, developing travel skill, using digital devices, etc. We work to inform the community about the problems, needs and potential of visually impaired persons. Regular meetings include wide-ranging discussions such as accessing cultural resources, using the free talking books library, sharing news of progress in vision research. A monthly flyer available to anyone through email or snail mail announces the current topic for the meetings of the Visually Impaired Group.
