EyeConnection is a peer support group for persons 55 and older, who are legally blind. Our mission is to help seniors understand vision loss, as well as assist in obtaining coping mechanisms for blindness and mastering the problems of living with low vision.
We understand that vision loss affects one's self esteem, social interaction and activities of daily living. We are here to promote friendships, enhance productivity and plant new seeds of fellowship, despite this life altering challenge.
EyeConnection brings people together:
- to meet and share with others who have the same concerns about vision loss and/or blindness
- to form friendships and partnerships bridging the gap between loss of independence and the continuity of a happy, healthy, productive lifestyle to socialize and interact in numerous activities
- to discuss important issues with various speakers
Meet with us each 2nd Friday of the month from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Low Vision Rehabilitation Center at 1714 Claiborne Avenue. Enjoy great discussions, speakers, activities, food and fun. Bring a friend, bring a family member and bring an idea!
