Adaptations: The Bay Area’s #1 Blind Tech Store

Adaptations is the only place in Northern California with a comprehensive offering of tools, technology, and other solutions for blind and visually impaired people. The store is located at our San Francisco headquarters at 1155 Market Street, on the 10th floor.

Store hours are Monday through Friday, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., with extended hours on Tuesdays until 7 p.m. We are also open on the second Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

The store is both a place to shop and get hands-on feedback and resources for adaptations of all types. Our knowledgeable staff will guide and help you find the best assistive technology to fit each customer’s unique visual needs.

At Adaptations we use LightSpeed point of sale technology, which is accessible and allows blind and visually impaired store staff to easily ring up your purchases. In order to provide enhanced one-on-one customer service we emphasize in-person customer experience. Although we do not take online orders at the current time, we encourage you to call our staff at 1-888-400-8933 to inquire about item pick up or mail orders or email Ben Einstein at beinstein@lighthouse-sf.org.
