Rehabilitation services for the blind and visually impaired in Atlanta and Georgia

Whether you’re experiencing vision loss for the first time or have never had full vision, the Center for the Visually Impaired can help you. We can also help you identify additional resources for yourself or a loved one.

Our programs include low vision exams and occupational therapy to help you adjust to vision loss, while retaining your independence. We also offer support with mobility, independent living skills, and assistive technology.

For families with children of all ages experiencing vision loss, we offer parent education, IEP navigation, one-on-one and small group classes as well as social activities.

Some services for adults may be covered by your insurance. CVI accepts Medicare, Medicaid, and most Medicare Advantage and private insurance plans in Georgia.

We also offer private pay options for services that are not covered by your insurance. Financial Assistance is available based on income and household size.
