About ICBVI

ICBVI is a state agency which has been serving Idahoans since 1967. The agency assists blind and visually impaired persons to achieve independence by providing education, developing work skills, increasing self-confidence and helping them remain employed or prepare for employment.

What is Blindness?

A person is considered legally blind when the best corrected visual acuity is 20/200 in the better eye or the person’s visual field is 20 degrees or less. The amount of remaining vision is not the determiner of success. With proper instruction, a blind or visually impaired person can perform most any task by employing alternative techniques. ICBVI provides services for persons who are legally blind, functionally blind or in danger of blindness.

ICBVI Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower persons who are blind or visually impaired by providing vocational rehabilitation, skills training, and educational opportunities to achieve self-fulfillment through quality employment and independent living.
