Clients

1 in 3 adults over the age of 65
live with some type of vision loss.

You are not alone. We are here to help.

A3 acts as a life improvement resource for individuals living with vision loss. We help clients with a range of eyesight including people with cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa,  and total blindness. We understand each of these conditions and have specific tips and tricks to help our clients overcome.

If you or a loved one is living with vision loss, please contact us. If we are unable to help, we have a network of resources and will connect you to an organization that will help.

Network

Since 1978, A3 has worked to build a network of trusted solution providers
throughout the Denver metro area.

Programs

In Home Services

Our Sight for Seniors (SFS) and Vision Link (VL) programs provide education, training, support and resources for individuals who are blind or visually impaired. These personalized, in-home services include an initial home assessment as well as ongoing, regular home visits. Participants receive the tools and support needed to overcome obstacles and restore a sense of normalcy. These services build lasting relationships and help to ensure that our clients’ homes are fitted to their unique needs.

Resource Expos

Our Visually Impaired People’s (VIP) Fairs bring together service providers from across the Denver metro area and offer the visually impaired and caretakers a one-stop-shop to connect to resources including adaptive aid kits and health care providers. These resource expos and educational seminars provide participants with the most current information on vision loss as well as access to professional resources to help those who come live safely and independently.

Newsletter

Our newsletter, Sixth Sense, provides in-depth information on issues, available services, and anything relevant to the population we serve. We work hard to ensure that each issue is both informative and up-to-date. Sixth Sense is sent out as a quarterly email, which allows our visually impaired constituents to use software on their computer to read the issue out loud to them. If you would like to receive a copy of Sixth Sense each quarter, click here, and we will add you to our mailing list!

Events & Presentations

Each year, A3 sponsors Public Awareness Events to raise public awareness about the issues facing people who are blind and visually impaired. Annual celebrations like Raisin’ Cane and Dinner in the Dark are a great way to bring together the community. A3 also puts on over a dozen smaller community presentations, workshops and seminars that help to inform the visually impaired and members of the Denver community. Many of these events include a fundraising opportunity to support our organization and our mission.
