The Palmetto Vision Alliance maximizes resources for blind and visually impaired persons in South Carolina through collaboration, cooperation, and coordination among key service stakeholders.

Preventing Loss

With early detection, vision loss can be slowed ― even stopped ― with minor intervention, making regular eye care essential for all.

Protecting Sight

When diseases causing vision loss are identified, some can be addressed with corrective surgery or a simple pair of glasses.

Empowering Life

Irreversible vision loss need not be a detractor from a meaningful and engaging life with the accessibility of vision rehabilitation services.

Awareness & Public Policy

Vision health is rarely defined as an “essential service,” yet our sight is absolutely essential to our quality of life, safety, economic security, and general health and well-being. Learn more about how the PVA is increasing awareness of eye care in South Carolina and promoting sustainable solutions across our state.
