Being visually impaired creates challenges for people in everyday life. For the non-visually impaired, we often take for granted the ability to see clearly. However, those who face these challenges often need assistance to help them in their day-to-day lives.
There are a number of aids for vision impaired individuals that can help them enjoy lives better. These include larger print books and magazines, clocks that will tell time audibly, magnifying devices to assist in making things larger and easier to see and other technologies that can assist the visually impaired as well as the blind.
To learn more about visually challenged individuals and the challenges they face we have gathered several resources that can help educate and inform. Please feel free to share this page with others who are looking for more information about being visually impaired.
