Adjusting to life with blindness is not easy, and people need assistance along the way. Fortunately, there are many organizations like San Diego Center for the Blind across the country, helping countless individuals learn new skills. The Northern Nevada Center for Independent Living, for instance, is teaching people Braille and how to travel independently.
"It's to help people talk about who recently lost their vision," said Mark Tadder, blindness advocacy and resource officer. "So, they can talk to other folks who [have] been through or going through it now [and] come to grips with it and prepare for the future."
Please reach out to SDCB for assistance with blindness or vision loss.
