Vision Loss

Are you or a loved one losing vision?  There are vision support groups in the area that may be able to help you cope.  The Chicago Lighthouse for People Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired has a group on Roosevelt Rd. in Chicago.  There are two groups in Oak Park; one is held at the Oak Park Public Library and the other is held at Oak Park Arms.
