Sponsor us for VisionWalk 2013
LS&S has served the needs of the visually impaired and hard of hearing for over 27 years. In June 2001, LS&S experienced a new beginning and a new invigoration of its operations, marketing, and customer service when we acquired the company from its founder. When Melissa’s father developed the wet-form of macular degeneration, we realized how important a resource a company like this could be. Living with a family member with low vision and experiencing the related challenges.
LS&S is a professionally run, family business that is responsive to customers, active in the industry, and rewarding for people involved with the company.
