For People Living with Restricted Vision and Blindness

Low Vision Support Group

With age comes a higher risk of developing eye conditions and diseases. A diagnosis of a severe eye condition can create concern for your independence and uncertainty about the future. However, vision loss does not mean the end of independent living. People with visual impairments can still live rich, fulfilling lives with support.

Bacoa’s Low Vision Support Group provides education and support for people living with restricted vision. We bring people with vision loss together to adjust to this new phase in their lives and cope with existing vision restrictions. Share your story in a friendly and supportive environment, surrounded by people who understand.

A Place for All

Vision loss can occur at any age, whether caused by an eye condition, illness, or injury. Our Low Vision Support Group welcomes anyone affected by restricted vision, from partial vision loss to complete blindness. Some members are actively adjusting to a new impairment, while others face vision loss earlier in life. This group offers an opportunity to share your feelings and experiences with others facing the same challenges.

We’re here for you.

Bacoa is your connection to helpful resources. Our team is ready to assist with any aging-related needs. We look forward to connecting with you.
