Peak Vista’s Second Sight Vision Services, co-located with Peak Vista’s Senior Center at Union and Vickers, provides non-medical help to the visually-impaired who want to learn how to live more independently despite challenges with their sight. Second Sight does this by teaching clients how to cook, handle money, travel around town, etc. primarily through one-on-one training. Second Sight can also teach visually-impaired persons how to use specialized equipment, including computer programs, that are designed to meet many of their unique challenges.
