“There are assistive programs, like state departments for the blind, that help people who are losing their vision. They were able to help me get rides to and from work when my eyesight was bad. Agencies for the blind may also be able to get you electronic devices that increase font sizes for you, which is helpful when you’re reading ingredients in the store!”
