NATIONAL GLAUCOMA AWARENESS MONTH
Glaucoma is often referred to as the “sneak thief of sight” as vision changes tend to occur gradually and without pain. Though peripheral vision usually is affected first, glaucoma may also lead to “tunnel vision” and not everyone’s experience will be the same.

Whether you are experiencing vision loss now or have been blind for some time, we offer a broad range of services to help you cope with vision impairment and maintain your independence.
Lackawanna Blind Association offers vision screenings using the state-of-the-art SPOT screening device for children and adults throughout Lackawanna and Susquehanna Counties. We also offer a reduced-cost eyeglasses program for those who need glasses and cannot afford them.
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!
