WHO WE ARE
E.A.R.S. is a nonprofit public charity. We provide, free of charge, audio lessons that teach adaptive daily living skills to the vision impaired and their caregivers. The lessons, modeled after current blind rehabilitation techniques, are a must for anyone coping with loss of eyesight. We are committed to teaching, each of the 1 out of 6 seniors who have developed limited vision, the skills necessary to continue living their lives with confidence and dignity.
YOUR INDEPENDENCE IS OUR GOAL
With the onset of declining vision comes the need to relearn how to do many daily activities. By listening to E.A.R.S. lessons, you'll hear uncomplicated, straight-forward ways to help you do the things made difficult by low vision. Personal grooming, doing the laundry, dialing the telephone, can once again become simple, enjoyable events. You can maintain your independence and E.A.R.S. is here to tell you how, right in your own home, with low vision rehabilitation training.
WHAT IS LOW VISION REHABILITATION?
Quite simply, it's learning practical techniques to overcome the limitations of vision loss. It provides solutions for safely moving about, making the most of available light and contrasting color, and using your sense of touch to replace information your eyes used to provide. It enables you to continue living independently. By listening to E.A.R.S. audio lessons you'll learn many new ways to successfully continue to do everyday activities when you have reduced vision.
