Founded in 1936, the Prevention of Blindness Society of Metropolitan WashingtonÂ® (POB) is the largest local prevention of blindness agency in the United States, dedicated to the improvement and preservation of sight by providing services, education, advocacy and innovation.
POB screens more than 8,000 children annually for vision loss and strabismus, and thousands of adults for glaucoma. The organization provides thousands of low-income and homeless community members with eyeglasses each year, and helps those with low vision retain their independence through personalized rehabilitation programs at its Low Vision Learning Centers in Washington, DC and Alexandria, VA. POB sponsors the Aging Eye Network, Macular Degeneration Network, and Stargardtâ€™s Network, which provide free public programs and support groups.
