Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired
Confident living with vision loss.
The Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired is the oldest organization in the country serving blind adults and elders. After more than a century of service, we know that vision loss doesn’t have to mean the end of a full life. But many people who are losing their vision don’t know where to go for help. Our vision rehabilitation services help people with low or no vision learn new strategies for completing activities of daily living. Our certified Occupational Therapists can help make a home safer and recommend adaptive devices to make life with reduced vision easier.
The majority of individuals experiencing vision loss are older adults living with macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, or diabetic retinopathy. As the baby boom generation ages, the number of people with uncorrectable vision loss is expected to double. MABVI partners with respected community and medical groups to provide high impact, cost effective services. Find out how vision rehabilitation can change your life.

"Volunteering is a very, very important part of my life. Since I retired it makes me feel purposeful, like I am part of something meaningful. There are pairs of people working together for years and in some cases decades. The volunteers are part of a support system that make it possible for blind people to be contributing workers and community members who just happen to be blind."
