Helen Keller Services for the Blind is happy to announce the reopening of our low vision clinics in our Hempstead and Islandia locations. Appointments for both locations can be made by calling 516 485-1234 ext 615.  For your safety and those of other we require that you wear a mask upon entering our facility and ask that you limited the number of companions coming with you to one (1). When you arrive for your appointment you will be asked several questions regarding any possible exposure to the COVID-19 virus and will have your temperature taken.  Please contact us if you have any questions about low vision or any of our other services.   Please check back for information on the reopening date of our Brooklyn low vision clinic and services.
