Vision Resource Coalition

The Vision Resource Coalition began in 2010 as The Coalition of Vision Resources with 9 original organizations in Omaha and western Iowa.  Its purpose was to better inform optometrists and ophthalmologists about resources for people with chronic vision loss.  The Vision Resource Coalition has now expanded to a Coalition of over 20 organizations dedicated to serving the blind and visually impaired.  Visit them here.
