Services for Seniors

Our low vision counselors who work with seniors know that vision loss due to conditions like macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and other age-related eye conditions can be a frustrating and difficult part of aging. The good news is that while it may require learning some new skills and making some adaptations, vision loss need not destroy your quality of life, or your ability to live independently. Our Senior Services team has the tools, techniques, and training you’ll need to stay mentally and physically active and independent. If you have questions or would like more information, give us a call at 651-539-2331.
