Giving Tuesday 2018

How Your Gift Helps

The Sight Center of Northwest Ohio offers a unique blend of programs and services that can help people of all ages work, learn, play, and live independently with permanent vision loss. From the Low Vision Clinic to high tech assistive devices, daily living adaptations, home safety enhancements, white cane training and caregiver support, The Sight Center is changing lives every day!

Your Giving Tuesday donation will help The Sight Center provide individualized services for people who fall through the cracks, including:
  • Children who need services beyond what the school district is required to provide.
  • Veterans whose vision loss is not severe enough to qualify for VA low vision services.
  • Older adults on a fixed income who need assistance to purchase a useful low vision device.
  • Working age adults who leave the workforce to adjust to the new reality of their vision loss.
