Low Vision Resource Center

This Resource Center provides low vision aids* and equipment for people age fifty-five (55) and over with low vision, to assist them in gaining or maintaining independent living skills.

MERIL staff have been trained by Rehabilitation Services for the Blind to be specialists in providing quality services in rehabilitation and equipment for people who are blind and those with low vision. Our goal is to impact the independence and productivity of people receiving services.

MERIL accepts donated low vision equipment and makes those items available to others in need.

*Low vision aids include optical magnifiers to aid people with low vision.
