There are a wide array of tools and devices available to help make common, everyday tasks easier for someone adjusting to vision loss.The Iowa Department for the Blind sells many of these useful assistive devices at cost to Iowans in our Aids & Devices Store. It is conveniently located off the main reception area on the first floor of our building in Des Moines. Customers can make purchases in person, by telephone, email, or through the mail.
In order to have the Aids & Devices Store open when demand is higher and provide better service to customers, store hours will be shifting slightly. Starting Monday, October 3, the store will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon and 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm., Monday through Friday. The store is closed on official state holidays.
