About Our Agency

The Center for Vision Loss is the only nonprofit organization that serves the visual well-being of everyone in Lehigh, Northampton, and Monroe counties at little or no cost. Its core principle is that visual deficits should never decrease a person’s quality of life nor be a barrier to independence and achievement. The agency traces its inception to 1928, when Lions Clubs in Lehigh and Northampton counties responded to a direct appeal from iconic activist Helen Keller. Expansion in 2002 took place at the urging of community leaders in Monroe County.

To enable personal triumphs over vision challenges.

To influence a world in which vision loss is not a barrier to independence and achievement.
