Blind and Visually Impaired (Access Help)

Resources for the Blind & Visually Impaired

Family Eye Care Center – Elkins, WV

Family Eye Care Center has provided the following resources that we hope will be useful to our patients and others who are blind and visually impaired.

Today, our lives look different than they did just a few months ago, but the struggle to ensure accessibility for individuals living with blindness or visual impairment remains the same. APH is committed to providing the accessibility you need.
