For more than 30 years, POB’s Low Vision 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, and glaucoma.

The Network provides emotional support, shares assistive resources, and promotes vision health awareness — helping thousands with serious vision conditions combat isolation and live productive lives.

The Network can connect you with others who understand your vision journey and can share insights on coping with your vision condition. Network events can take the form of traditional support group sessions, technology demonstrations, informational talks from doctors, and other educational events.

Where can I find a support group?

POB currently helps run 10+ 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 readers with low vision. It covers topics that are commonly discussed at Network events, such as vision health and other helpful insights for persons with serious vision conditions. It also publishes information on upcoming Network events.
