Try this...
if( $('a').is(':visible') ) {
    // it's visible, do something
}
else {
    // it's not visible so do something else
}

You have multiple anchor links so you will need each function

$(document).ready(function() {
	$('a').each(function(){ 
		if($(this).is(':visible') ) {
			//Visible 
}
else {
    // not visible so do something else
}
	});
});
