For over 30 years, The Janet Morrison Resource & Support Network has fostered support, awareness, and community-building to combat isolation among people with visual impairments, including age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, Stardgardt’s Disease, and more.

POB can connect you with others who understand your vision journey and can share insights on coping with your vision condition. Network events can be traditional support group sessions, technology demonstrations, educational presentations by doctors, and other informational events.

Where can I find a support group?

POB currently helps run more than ten groups in the Greater Washington region. In addition, we maintain a list of other area groups that may be closer to you. Call our Low Vision Resource Center at (301) 951-4444 to find a group or event for you.

We also publish Your Eyes Today, a monthly large-print newsletter designed for people with vision impairment. It covers topics commonly discussed at Network events, such as vision health and other helpful insights for persons with vision impairment. It also publishes information on upcoming Network events.
