Get Your Mobility Back

When you or a loved one experience vision loss, it becomes more difficult to get your bearings; to know where you are and where you want to go; to safely get there. It’s one of the toughest parts of dealing with vision loss, both physically and emotionally.

VIA’s orientation and mobility training allows you to get your orientation and mobility back once you’ve experienced vision loss. Our O&M specialists will provide you with a variety of O&M techniques to help you navigate your home, neighborhood, workplace, or other community settings. These include the use of residual vision, a sighted guide, a long cane, a guide dog, current technology, and others.
