Welcome to the Wisconsin Council of the Blind & Visually Impaired

The Wisconsin Council of the Blind & Visually Impaired, located in Madison, WI, is a private not-for-profit community-based organization.

Our Mission is to promote the dignity and independence of the people in Wisconsin who are blind and visually impaired by providing services, advocating legislation and educating the general public.

Make Sure a Vision Check is on Your Back-to-School “To-Do” List

August finds parents and grandparents checking off important activities before their children and grandchildren start a new school year.  Enrollment form? Check! Orientation schedule?  Check!  Immunizations? Check! 

How about their eyes??  We hope you said, “Check!” because good vision is key to a child’s physical development, success in school, and overall well-being.

Prevent Blindness America (www.preventblindness.org) has designated August as Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month.
