The CHICAGO LIGHTHOUSE
INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION
OF STEREO PHOTOGRAPHY

The Chicago Stereo Camera Club proudly donates
all profits from the International Exhibition to the Chicago Lighthouse for People Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired. Since 1906 the Chicago Lighthouse has been creating opportunities which enable people who are blind, visually impaired or blind with additional disabilities to assume their rightful place in society.


Since 1906, The Chicago Lighthouse has been creating opportunities to enable people who are blind, visually impaired or blind with additional disabilities to have equal access to education and employment.

With a broad base of corporate, foundation and individual support, hopes become reality every day at the Lighthouse: a child takes a first step toward independence with a white cane; a senior citizen lives independently with special visual aids.

New initiatives in the past year include a new assistive devices store online for more convenient shopping. Small business owners who are blind had 14 new store opportunities developed through the work of Lighthouse business developers. The clock making facility added an additional production line to keep up with orders, now making 1,200 clocks each day. The Low Vision Clinic has added occupational therapists and psycho-social support services to help people adjust to low vision. A new satellite clinic for low vision services has been opened at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, open two days a week. CRIS Radio studios have recorded a weekly program called “The Beacon” that can be heard on 950AM radio each Sunday, covering issues and events for people living with blindness.

The Chicago Stereo Camera Club, through the profits of the Lighthouse Exhibition, provided part of the initial grants necessary to secure equipment and support servicies for the The Chicago Lighthouse Adaptive Technology Center. The center was the first of its kind in the Midwest when it was established in 1983. Since then, it has enabled persons with visual impairment to obtain jobs, to gain access to school or university training, to enhance their careers and to perform daily living tasks.
