Blindness and low vision have many causes - premature birth, cancer, strokes,accidents, meningitis, congenital defects and a myriad of other eye diseases can lead to vision loss and blindness.
Man's domestication of dogs coincides with the evolution of early breeds of dogs about 150,000 years ago. The first special relationship between a dog and a blind person is lost in the mists of time, but perhaps the earliest recorded example is depicted in a first-century AD mural in the buried ruins of Roman Heculaneum.
There are approximately 80 IGDF member organisations around the world. Contact a Guide Dog organisation that services your area by following the links on this website and speak to them about how a Guide Dog can help you. You do not have to be totally blind to benefit from a Guide Dog.
