Founded in 1936, the Prevention of Blindness Society of Metropolitan Washington (POB) is dedicated to the improvement and preservation of sight and quality of life by providing services and education, and by championing healthy vision and innovation to everyone in our area.
POB has community resources for all ages and levels of vision.
Our Low Vision Resource Guide offers everything you need to navigate your vision journey — whether you are seeking support for recent vision loss, long-time vision loss, or for family members or caregivers.
Additionally, our resources will help you locate local eye care providers, find financial assistance for eye care, and more.
We are so grateful for your support as we continue to do everything we can to improve and preserve sight and quality of life!
Whether you want to give your time, raise awareness, or donate in honor of a loved one, you have the power to be a champion for vision health!
