About BESB

The Bureau of Education and Services for the Blind (BESB), within the Department of Rehabilitation Services  provides resources, comprehensive low vision services, specialized education services, life skills training, case management, and vocational services to individuals of all ages who are legally blind and to children who are visually impaired.

If you are experiencing a vision loss that makes simple daily tasks difficult or impossible, you may be eligible for services from the Bureau of Education and Services for the Blind (BESB).  Talk to your eye care professional, physician, or a neurologist about submitting an eye report form to BESB.
