- Doing even more for your low-vision patients... Eye doctors are often the first professionals that people consult when they experience vision loss. After doing all that you can do professionally, you can do even more -- by referring your eligible low-vision patients to the Bureau of Services for Blind Persons.
The Bureau of Services for Blind Persons provides services to blind and visually impaired Michigan residents of all ages. These services are provided using state and federal funds. Read more about eligibility for services...
