Low Vision Services


The Low Vision program at the California School for the Blind offers support for educators and low vision students throughout California.

We provide:

  • free examination by UC Berkeley optometrists who specialize in low vision.
  • written report on a student's vision, including recommendations for electronic magnification needs.
  • optical devices for educational needs, such as magnifiers, monocular telescopes, and sunglasses.
  • consultation for educators and students.

All services are provided at no cost.
