Financial Support for Visual Aids

Visual Aid Grants

Do you or a loved one have low vision and no resources for equipment?

We are proud partners with low vision clinics around the state to support Illinois residents of all ages. ISPB assists by purchasing low vision aids, scleral lenses, and glasses to those who cannot afford them. We believe that everyone should have the best quality of life possible when living with low vision. Please contact the clinics directly for an appointment.
