BCABVI Receives $15,000 Grant For New Low Vision Clinic

July, 2011

 

The Bucks County Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired has been awarded a $15,000 capital grant from Foundations Community Partnership to purchase durable medical equipment for a new Low Vision Clinic currently being developed in Telford, PA.

 

“With the support of Foundations Community Partnership, we will be able to achieve our long-awaited goal: to open a low vision clinic serving children, youth and adults experiencing low vision in Upper Bucks County,” says Anne Marie Spinden, Executive Director. “We will be able to help more people prepare for and manage their vision loss, maintain hope, and regain their independence.”

 

One in every twenty Americans is affected by low vision, but less than 15% of the people with low vision are aware of the specialized services within the field of optometry that are available to help them. The Telford clinic will provide access to these valuable services to a previously underserved community.

 

BCABVI has successfully operated a Low Vision Clinic in Newtown, PA since 2006. The Telford clinic is expected to open October 2011.
