The VISOR Program

Veterans across the country whose lives are impacted by Macular Degeneration (and other vision issues) have access to this vitally important resource offered by the Veterans Administration.

The SupportSight Foundation is committed to raising awareness of this resource that benefits the men and women who have selflessly protected and served us.

Here’s What You Need to Know:
This program provides short-term (about 2 weeks) blind and vision rehabilitation. They provide overnight accommodations for veterans and active duty members who are visually impaired and require lodging. Those who attend VISOR must be able to perform basic activities of daily living independently, including the ability to self-medicate.   In addition to the low vision and orientation and mobility services already described, VISOR also provides training in communication, activities of daily living and computer use.
