Welcome to the Lions Center for the Visually Impaired

The Lions Center for the Visually Impaired preserves vision, fosters independence and enhances the quality of life for adults in the East Bay who are blind or at risk for vision loss and serves as a trusted source of information and expertise on blindness in the community.

Are you losing your sight?  Are you worried about a friend or family member who shows signs of vision loss?  We’re here to help.

The Center for the Visually Impaired-Diablo Valley offers services focused on early detection and intervention in order to prevent or slow vision loss from age-related eye disease.  We also give older adults in the East Bay the tools and skills they need to maintain their health, independence and quality of life despite vision loss.

Message from the Executive Director

Welcome to our website.  We hope you find information you can use today and that you come back to browse regularly as we add information and resources for the blind and visually impaired community in the coming months.

Whether you’re looking for information about the most common causes of vision loss or you want to find out about our vision technology classes, free vision screenings and other services, we hope to meet your needs through this site.  Here at the Center we believe firmly that losing your vision doesn’t have to mean loss of independence or meaning in your life.  You should still be able to enjoy your favorite activities, whether those involve outdoor adventures, reading the latest novel, cooking your favorite recipes or staying in touch with family and friends via email.  Our staff is trained to help you set reasonable goals and make a plan to reach them.  The focus is on enabling you to do the things you like best.  We work very hard at removing the phrase “You can’t” from our vocabulary when we talk to clients.

Give us a call at 925-432-3013 and we’ll put you in touch with a staff member and the resources to help you reach your goals and assure the quality of your life.

We’d love to hear from you as we add content to the site.  If you’d like to make a suggestion or if you have questions about the site, our services or other resources available in the community, please call the Center at 925-432-3013 or email us at
