NEWS & EVENTS
Eye doctor examining patient's eye
Diabetes is a leading cause of blindness in working-age Americans. The eye conditions affecting people with diabetes are collectively called diabetic eye disease—these include cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy.
Jeffrey Gerhardstein
Sight Connection social worker Jeffrey Gerhardstein was featured in Washington Talking Book & Braille Library’s fall newsletter, Reading Matters. The Washington Talking Book & Braille Library (WTBBL) is a program of the Washington State Library that provides library services, at the library and by mail, to any Washington resident unable to read standard print material due to visual impairment or disability.
Lynette & Bonnie
In 1965, Bonnie found herself looking for support for her deaf, blind toddler, Lynnette. During the Rubella epidemic between 1962-65, more than 20,000 children were born with disabilities resulting from infection during pregnancy, including vision and hearing loss. This epidemic impacted families in Seattle, and, with the seeds of support from Sight Connection, launched an increase in advocacy for children with disabilities for the next 50 years.

Woman's eyes with decorative contact lenses
Halloween is right around the corner, and you may see “fashion”, “costume”, or “colored” contact lenses being advertised as the perfect accessory to your costume. Although it might be tempting to take your zombie or cat costume to another level, it is important to remember that contact lenses are not accessories.
Group of four people holding DESC Award
DESC is a nonprofit organization that works to end the homelessness of vulnerable people, particularly those living with serious mental or addictive illnesses.
