In line with our mission to improve the lives of visually impaired individuals and their families, VOC donates handheld video magnifiers to kids with low vision who otherwise can't afford one, with the goal of helping them see better and achieve their full potential.
Over the past two decades, we have funded groundbreaking research around the world. Research remains the surest route to a cure for hereditary vision disorders.
As a foundation dedicated to the betterment of the lives of others, providing family support has always been an integral piece of our mission. Learning how to come to terms with a diagnosis can be one of the most difficult parts of vision loss. That is why we feel it is necessary to provide answers and networks for anyone in need of such services.
