The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining us!

About Us



` “Catch the Vision” is a group of low vision and blind individuals who together have many years’ experience using electronic devices and products for daily living. We share information about the different devices, products and software we use for our particular needs.


Because of our collective experiences we help to point individuals to the services that can help them to lead an active and independent life. We welcome family members and caregivers to learn about these products and services in order to help those with loss of vision.


Focusing on accessibility, pedestrian safety and promoting public awareness is a major topic of discussion, since we are out and about with our white canes and guide dogs.


Living a fulfilling and independent life is what we are all about! We share tips, evaluate products and various services in the Prescott, Prescott Valley and outlying areas.


Come join us at the Prescott Library, 215 E Good win Street in the Bump Room on the main floor, every first and third Monday of each month, (except holidays) from 1:00 to 3:00 PM.
