Meet Virginia, Technology Center & Store Manager since 2011

"Our #1 priority is ensuring that each client gets what works best for them.    

We do this through one-on-one consultations and encouraging a hands-on experience prior to purchase (during Covid-19, we are focusing on phone consultations).

Our wide range of products offered is a result of building relationships with a large network of vendors. As a result, we have become the leading assistive technology center for the blind and vision impaired in San Diego County. 

Please call our store. I will be glad to help you be as independent as possible."
