Vision Helpline: Vision Support

Vision impairments include an extensive range of causes and severities, from congenital disabilities to diseases, to color blindness. Vision loss can be a very traumatic experience and requires a great deal of support emotionally and physically. Regardless of how severe or mild you or your loved one's vision impairment is, there are plenty of resources and products that can help you and your loved one live an enjoyable and fulfilling life.

Sharing your own experiences about managing or caring for a loved one with vision impairments or learning more about the challenges and successes others have experienced, the ExtendaTouch vision support group will enable you to connect with actual people who experience the same daily challenges. ExtendaTouch is entirely free and is packed full of stories, friendly advice, and resources that can help you feel part of a positive group. All types of people gather to share resources and opportunities that can help everyone live their best life while providing care for their loved ones.

When I was a child I had glasses and later had surgery to correct my nearsightedness. I now need glasses in low light that I hope to correct by replacing my lenses with the new appliances that attach to your muscles to control near and far vision. I had 20/15 vision after surgery. Has anyone had any advanced vision surgery they care to share?

My grandfather and mom had macular degeneration. While it was too late for my grandfather, my mom got regular shots and slowed the progression of the disease.
