State-of-the-art technology meets old-fashioned service

Graphic of an open hand holding a gear with a heart cut-out AdaptiVision specializes in finding the right technology solutions for clients who are blind or who have low vision due to conditions like macular degeneration (including age-related macular degeneration, wet AMD, and Stargardt’s disease), retinitis pigmentosa, glaucoma, and others. In business for 30 years, we have established relationships with top manufacturers in the industry.

Our mission is to serve the low vision community with the highest level of integrity through the following commitments.



Our 5 Commitments

1. We are committed to helping you meet your goals, and we have a passion to see you become more independent.

2. We commit to going above and beyond the average retailer.

We don’t just process orders, we support you at each step along the way.  From consultation, to demo, to training and tech support, our goal is always to help you succeed and find greater independence with the technology you invest in.  We value your business and seek to earn your trust by providing sound recommendations and personalized support.  For this reason, we have the privilege of serving repeat customers over many years, supporting them through the difficulties of progressive vision loss.

“The patience, guidance, leadership and equipment provided by AdaptiVision have allowed me to . . . continue to be productive in many ways, in spite of my very poor vision now.”

— Bernie McGee

We also have established relationships with the top manufacturers of low vision devices.  We narrow the field by researching, testing, and offering only the best, highest-quality products that use advanced, innovative technologies to help low vision users regain their independence.

4. We commit to make lighting a top priority.

Our unique approach emphasizes lighting as a key factor for improving one’s quality of life with low vision. That is why we feel it’s so important to try out any low vision aid in the environment where it will most be used, typically in the home. With each consultation, we assess the client’s goals, budget, and the environmental factors that will affect his or her success – especially lighting.


5. We commit to creating opportunity for you to try new technology in your home environment.

The most effective way to evaluate a piece of technology is to use it in your home environment. Using it in your home allows us to address important parameters, such as the lighting in your home (and possible glare), ergonomic considerations, and where the device will be used.

Also, by trying out the device at home, you can read and look at examples of text and other items that are part of your daily life.  Addressing these issues together will help us ensure that you receive the maximum benefit from the technology.
