Low Vision Assistance – So You Can See the Glory of Niagara Falls!
Low Vision describes a condition that cannot be corrected by regular eyeglasses, contact lenses, or eye surgery. Therefore, a person with low vision cannot see all the sites and enjoy all the activities that they want. Sadly, many of these people are told that there is no treatment to help them.

When someone talks about Niagara Falls, they are referring to the location of three separate waterfalls that lie on the international border between Ontario, Canada, and New York, USA. Each of these waterfalls actually has its own name: Horseshoe Falls, American Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls. (The American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls lie totally on the United States side.) When you visit this natural wonder of the world, you will be immersed in an exhilarating, one-of-a-kind outdoor adventure. Ride the Maid of the Mist or explore the Cave of the Winds on foot. To get a distant view of the whole park, take a trip on the Niagara Scenic Trolley. The Niagara Falls State Park offers you the Falls and over 400 acres of scenic landscape awaiting discovery.
While your sense of sight is essential to appreciate Niagara Falls, your sense of taste can also contribute to enjoyment of the area. We encourage you to take a limo or bus tour of the Niagara Wine Trail; you’ll be able to sample over 22 wineries, breweries, and cideries. For a truly American dining experience, we recommend that you catch a mouthwatering meal at the Marketside Café, in Niagara Falls, NY, or savor the pizza at Donatello’s Restaurant.
