Live Your Vision

Since 1929, CABVI’s mission has been to assist people who are blind or visually impaired to achieve their highest levels of independence.

Low Vision Treatment

We know that remaining vision is usable vision, and our objective with low vision treatment is to help people make the most of the remaining vision they have.

Vision Rehabilitation Therapy

Therapists work with individuals to identify areas of need that will enable them to live safe, productive, and independent lives.

Orientation & Mobility Training

O & M specialists assist children and adults with learning how to travel safely in homes, schools, workplaces, and communities.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists work with both children and adults to identify problem areas, such as fine motor skills, that when corrected, will increase success in other areas.

Support Services

Support services provide individual and group programming to help consumers adjust to their vision loss through education and skills training.

Technology Training

Advances in technology have created exciting and bountiful opportunities for blind or visually impaired people. At CABVI, we teach computer skills with state-of-the-art equipment and hands-on training through our tech center.

Educational Services

CABVI’s teachers of the visually impaired (TVI) work with children of all ages providing academic instruction and ensuring educational success.

Adaptive Sports and Recreation

Through engagement of sports and various recreational activities, people who are blind or visually impaired improve their health and overall wellness to achieve greater confidence and independence.
