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.

The Council will be closed Monday, September 1, in observance of Labor Day.  We will resume regular working hours on Tuesday, September 2.

Take your pills safely!

It is estimated that nearly 40% of Americans aged 60 and over use five or more prescription drugs.  If you have vision impairment, this can impact your access to prescription labeling and related information.
