Vision Impairment, Blindness

About 54,000 Iowans have experienced vision loss. But that doesn’t mean accepting “limitations” that many people think accompany blindness and visual impairment. The Iowa Department for the Blind believes all Iowans can lead productive, fulfilling lives – including those who happen to be blind or visually impaired. The Department supports and encourages independent living and full participation in life – at home, at work and in communities. Vision loss knows no boundaries with respect to age, gender or ethnicity. It should not and does not need to limit accomplishment in whatever a person wishes to do.
