People with retinal degeneration at SDCB that have received vision rehabilitation services

Donations For People With Retinal Degeneration & Other Vision Issues

During Covid-19, we still need your support to keep providing necessary services:

You’ll be shocked WHY we need your donations!

Imagine if you broke your leg and, then, you found out that your insurance doesn’t cover broken bones.

That’s what happens to every individual who is blind and finds themselves in need of vision rehabilitation services, because these services are NOT covered by insurance.

Yet, vision rehabilitation is critical to every individual who is blind or vision impaired. Vision rehabilitation teaches essential, life skills: How to cross the street. How to dress. How to cook. In other words, how to perform essential, everyday tasks.

We’re committed to filling the gap that insurance leaves by providing vision rehabilitation services at NO charge to visually impaired individuals. Please help us to continue providing vision rehabilitation services by making a donation today!
