Recent update: offering virtual rehabilitation for individuals with vision loss
The Carroll Center for the Blind has been providing rehabilitation and support services for people who are blind and visually impaired since 1936 when it opened as the country’s first rehabilitation center for newly blinded adults. Since that time, The Carroll Center has expanded to serve people of ALL ages and ALL stages of vision loss.
The Carroll Store sells low vision products such as magnifiers, lamps, specialty sunglasses, as well as talking watches/clocks, adaptive living devices, canes, and adaptive technology is open for web and phone orders and is shipping weekly.
Our organization provides vision rehabilitation services, vocational and transition programs, assistive technology training, educational support, and recreation opportunities for persons with limited vision to gain independence in their homes, in class settings and in their work places. Our highly skilled professional staff, combined with new and evolving technologies and time-tested adaptive methods have enabled thousands of persons to live successfully with vision loss.
