Prevention of Blindness Society Look Again Resale Shop

The Prevention of Blindess Society Look Again Resale Shop has been supporting the Prevention of Blindness Society of Metropolitan Washington's (POB) sight-saving programs since 1992 with the sale of antiques, furniture, collectibles, clothing, books and more. The store depends on the generosity of area residents for donations of gently used items, which are available for purchase at fantastic prices. Look Again is a must-see in Old Town Alexandria's shopping community and was named one of Refinery 29's "Irresistible Spots" in the D.C./Maryland/Northern Virginia area as part of their Ultimate Vintage Guide in 2013. All store proceeds go toward making POB's vision programs in the community a reality.

Founded in 1936, the Prevention of Blindness Society of Metropolitan Washington® (POB) is the largest local prevention of blindness agency in the United States, dedicated to the improvement and preservation of sight by providing services, education, advocacy and innovation. POB screens more than 8,000 children annually for vision loss and strabismus, and thousands of adults for glaucoma. The organization provides thousands of low-income and homeless community members with eyeglasses each year, and helps those with low vision retain their independence through personalized rehabilitation programs at its Low Vision Learning Centers in Washington, DC and Alexandria, VA. POB sponsors the Aging Eye Network, Macular Degeneration Network, and Stargardt’s Network, which provide free public programs and support groups.
