The McGreal Sight Center
Located at 25 Walker Street, Concord, NH, the McGreal Sight Center is the headquarters of the New Hampshire Association for the Blind - the first vision rehabilitation center in New Hampshire (dedicated in 1998). Comprehensive individual and group services are available at the Center for those able to travel to Concord.
The Association provides travel assistance for clients wishing to receive services at the Center, either by taxi paid for by generous grants to the Association, or by volunteer drivers.
At the Center, clients and their families may consult about vision impairment and blindness and the many services offered to help people regain or maintain the ability to function independently after vision loss.
The state-of-the-art computer lab is available for use by appointment and supports all the new technological advances for people who are blind and visually impaired. The Association also plays host to a monthly Technology Users Group.
