Who We Are

The Association for the Blind & Visually Impaired Offers Assistance To People With Visual Impairments or Blindness

Who We Are – The Association for the blind and Visually Impaired takes pride in giving hope and restoring vision.

People often come to us when their eye care professional can no longer correct their vision with glasses, contact lenses, medication or surgery.

ABVI restores independence to those with visual impairment and blindness.

Vision Rehabilitation Services

We help to restore hope through providing low vision services, rehabilitation, education, and vision aids.  Our expert vision professionals are dedicated to helping visually impaired thrive in a sighted world.

Our low vision therapists enable our clients with visual impairment or blindness to confidently live independently with their remaining vision.

These services include orientation and mobility training, refitting your home, and improving daily living activities on improving writing, reading, cooking, computer interaction, and cleaning.

Such activities can become difficult with the sudden transition of vision loss; however, with the right help, these activities do not have to become a new found burden.

ABVI is a full service agency offering low vision services, rehabilitation and education.

ABVI is an independent subsidiary of Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital. To learn more about Mary Free Bed visit www.maryfreebed.com
