The San Antonio Low Vision Club is a program of the Low Vision Resource Center, a
non-profit 501(c)(3) organization assisting visually impaired people with
education, mobility assistance, support groups, and socialization. The Low
Vision Club promotes independence for people with limited or no vision. In addition to providing
members with access to valuable information, the club provides the visually
impaired an opportunity to talk with others who share their challenges.
The club's monthly meetings include presentations designed to keep members
informed about the latest
research into eye diseases and how local resources can assist them. They
also offer a professionally-led forum for discussing members' problems and
concerns. Several times a year, the club organizes social gatherings for
its members. It also produces a quarterly newsletter in print and cassette
form and has published a directory of local resources for the visually impaired.
