Lighthouse for the Visually Impaired and Blind offers adults and seniors with a comprehensive vision rehabilitation program to promote optimal independence in all areas of independent living and includes assistance with coping and adjusting to vision loss and low vision. Babies served in “The Little Lighthouse” learn to use any residual vision they may have as well as their other senses so they are able to meet developmental milestones and are prepared for entering school. Children and teens receive independent living skills training and prepare for future employment. Family members and professionals also receive support and information. Clients are provided with transportation for services at both of our Lighthouse facilities. We also have low vision stores in Port Richey and Brooksville.
