How to Help


A key element to The Center’s mission is to provide services for every child and adult with low vision regardless of ability to pay. Our founder, Dr. Sam Genensky believed that everyone impacted by vision issues should be on an even playing field and should have equal access to high quality, state-of-the-art services.

Make a Difference

Some of our services and programs are funded in part by government contracts, family foundations, and corporations, however, a large portion of our funding comes directly from individual supporters like you.
