Veterans Can Get Assistance for Vision Loss

Veterans Can Get Assistance for Vision Loss

More than a million Veterans are legally blind or live with low vision. Ophthalmologists and other eye care professionals at the VA are helping veterans protect their vision.

Older Veterans are living with age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts, stroke, and diabetic retinopathy. Eye care specialists must identify patients at a higher risk of vision loss to prevent sight loss. Eye care professionals are administering routine eye exams and assisting Veterans living with blindness or low vision. Due to COVID-19, Veterans can get eye exams via tele-eye screenings.

SDCB helps people living with vision loss and blindness. Please contact us to learn more about our programs and services.
