ABOUT: MindsEye serves people who cannot read the printed word. Some listeners are totally blind. Others have low vision from macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, trauma or glaucoma. There are listeners who can no longer turn the pages of a newspaper because they have had a stroke or have Parkinson’s disease. They began in the early 1970’s, when there was no good way for blind people to get the contents of the newspaper.
Their home at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows- The Oblates have provided a home on the Shrine grounds for MindsEye since 1973. Situated on 200 wooded acres with an award-winning restaurant and gift shop, hotel for out-of-town guests and miles of peaceful walking and biking areas, the Shrine provides a beautiful backdrop for the work of MindsEye’s volunteers. For more info about the Shrine, visit www.snows.org.
