Ophthalmology concept.

LBA’s life skills instruction for visually impaired clients covers topics such as healthy eating and fire safety. We also offer eye health and safety education for children and adults throughout Lackawanna and Susquehanna counties.

Community Together Concept


Summer picnics, holiday parties, monthly movies and book club offer recreation. Shared experiences in support groups offer the opportunity for building a strong network of peer friendships. We hope you will join the Lackawanna Blind Association community!


The mission of the Lackawanna Blind Association is to support and promote the interests of the blind and visually impaired, and the prevention of avoidable blindness.

“I have trouble reading the newspaper, even when I wear my glasses.” 

“It’s becoming difficult to see the computer screen. I rely on the internet for so many things.”

 Our services equip blind or visually impaired adults with the skills and confidence they need to meet the challenges of everyday life.
