We’re hoping our new location will help us extend our reach into the community as we’re now centrally located in Broward County.

The Florida Vision Technology Center is now open in their new location in Fort Lauderdale. With over 24 years of experience, Lesa Kretschmer, founder and CEO, continues to champion efforts to enhance the quality of life for the visually impaired though assistive technology and community outreach. Building the company from the ground up, Florida Vision Technology opened their flagship store in Fort Lauderdale in 2003 and formed an alliance with Lighthouse of Broward five years later. With the advances in technology, new assistive technology products on the market, and training opportunities, the company quickly outgrew its space. The company smoothly transitioned to its new, larger, Fort Lauderdale location and recently opened on April 2nd.

The Florida Vision Technology Center is now conveniently located at 2880 West Oakland Park Boulevard (Suite 104) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. “We needed a bigger space where more customers can come in to experience products that will enhance their lives and independence. We’re hoping our new location will help us extend our reach into the community as we’re now centrally located in Broward County”, Kretschmer states.

“We’re having a Grand Opening celebration on April 18th to honor 18 years in business in South Florida”, Kretschmer adds. “The visually impaired, their families and caretakers, are all invited to attend”. The April 18th celebration will be held from 12pm to 4pm and feature complimentary food and refreshments, goodie bags, desktop video magnifier specials, and a Grand Prize raffle. Kretschmer offers, “As a way to thank our customers and welcome new ones, the Grand Prize is the Eschenbach SmartLux Magnifier (a $595 retail value).”

While the location may be new, Florida Vision Technology has the same dedicated and expert staff to assist customers with their assistive technology needs. Customers are provided with hands-on, interactive demonstrations to ensure the right product match. Product training also helps clients get acquainted with their new equipment and guarantee a successful outcome. In their new, expanded space, there’s a full room devoted to desktop video magnifiers and another dedicated area for client consultations and cutting-edge technology such as OrCam MyEye and Humanware Prodigi Connect. An assortment of portable, hand-held video magnifiers lines the wall in another area. Around the corner, there’s an impressive display of Braille embossers. They also showcase many essential daily living aids such as big button phones, keyboards, magnifiers, talking watches and clocks.

Part of Florida Vision Technology’s mission is also to keep customers up-to-date on the newest break-through products and special offers through emails, newsletters, and new products demonstrations in their store and at local and state-wide events.
