Are you having vision problems due to diabetes, glaucoma, macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa etc.? Do you sometimes feel as if you are the only person out there with vision problems, and the rest of the world just doesn't understand that you don't see so good? The Kentucky Council of Citizens with Low Vision (KCCLV) is just for you.

KCCLV is a chapter of the Kentucky Council of the Blind and the Council of Citizens with Low Vision International.

KCCLV's in-person support groups and telephone conference calls let you share tips and ideas for living with low vision, no matter where you call home. Programs include speakers such as low-vision specialists, doctors, and service providers. Discover low-vision devices and services that might be helpful to you.

KCCLV holds a conference call meeting on the first Tuesday of each month at 8:00 PM Eastern; anyone living in Kentucky or within 25 miles of Kentucky is welcome to attend. The call begins with a brief business meeting, followed by a discussion topic or speaker and time for questions. The dial-in number is 605-475-6006; the call code is 294444.

KCCLV sponsors an in-person low vision support group from 1:30 to 3:30 PM on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at United Crescent Hill Ministries in Louisville. Product demonstrations, speakers, hands-on activities, and resources pack each meeting. Meetings are free and open to anyone experiencing vision loss; family members and friends are also welcome.
