Senior Vision Services

Are you or someone you know having difficulty reading the mail, setting the thermostat, dialing the phone, or identifying medications?  We provide one-on-one interaction with our clients to help them overcome the fears and challenges that a visual impairment can cause.

Our program is staffed with registered nurses specifically trained in working with seniors with vision loss.

Qualifications for the program:  

  • Erie County resident
  • 60 years of age or older
  • Vision impairment

If qualified, our FREE home-based assessments, in conjunction with our low vision and vision-related medical services provided by our clinical staff, may significantly improve the quality of life as well as increase and/or maintain the independence of seniors.

Many of our clients have benefited from utilizing our available resources including:

  • Talking Books
  • Radio Reading Service
  • Free Directory Assistance and Dial Operator Privileges
  • Handicapped Parking Permits
  • Large Print Thermostats for National Fuel Customers
