The Occupational Therapists on staff teach clients how to incorporate these aids and techniques into their daily routines to improve their quality of life. Opticians are also able to assist with any needs for glasses (outside prescriptions are accepted).

Development/Fundraising and Volunteerism
The success of Cleveland Sight Center is greatly enhanced through the contributions of donors and volunteers. Without the philanthropic and volunteer support, CSC would be unable to provide the quality and quantity of programs and services benefitting those who are blind or experience low vision.

Marketing/Community Outreach
The marketing team at CSC works to tell the agency’s story, promote programs and services and deliver engaging and informative content to stakeholders through print, email, social media, Cleveland Sight Center Network (radio reading station) and the CSC website. The Community Outreach team offers a variety of informative, impactful and engaging eye-related presentations to groups and schools as well as an interactive training class on how to best interact with people who have vision loss or what to do when you meet a person who is blind.
