Our Mission

To prevent blindness and promote independence for those with vision loss.


Sight Center of Northwest PA

When a young person who was born blind learns to live on her own because of a vision rehabilitation specialist, The Sight Center is at work. When an individual with age-related macular degeneration is caringly transported from home to the doctor and back, or helped to buy groceries, The Sight Center is at work. When a vision screener tells a child’s parents and teacher that he may not be learning disabled but simply needs corrective lenses to let his natural intelligence shine through, The Sight Center is at work.

For more than 70 years, The Sight Center of Northwest Pennsylvania – originally Erie Center for the Blind and later Vision and Blindness Resources – has been our community’s primary resource for prevention of blindness and services to people who are visually impaired.
