Resources to help after vision loss

The San Diego Center for the Blind is your partner in finding helpful resources. In particular, after vision loss, you’ll likely be looking for information on how to continue living a full and independent life.

The American Foundation for the Blind has a free, comprehensive resource that we recommend that provides basic information “about adjusting to vision loss, including tips for adapting your home and daily living. Adults who are losing their sight, their families, caregivers, healthcare providers, and social service professionals will all find rich content and practical tips on living with vision loss.” Find the resource at AFB.
