A significant part of the mission of patient vision care and treatment is community outreach. At UAB there are extensive vision outreach efforts being conducted by the Department of Ophthalmology, the Department of Optometry and through the Orientation and Mobility program. The VSRC has played a direct role in supporting some of the many outreach programs and will continue to provide some level of support for these important outreach programs. As a service to the vision care patient we have assembled a series of webpages that lists and describes all of the vision outreach activities currently ongoing at UAB. Many thanks to the UAB vision outreach community for providing the information and for reviewing and perfecting it so that we can provide the most up to date and accurate information. I hope you will find these pages useful to direct you to helpful outreach services available at UAB.
