NewView Oklahoma

Ms. Goins is a 76-year-old young woman who has been diagnosed with Bi-Lateral Low Vision and has Glaucoma and Macular Degeneration. Due to these diagnoses, Ms. Goins has experienced a decrease in doing activities she would normally take enjoyment in completing. Ms. Goins stated she doesn’t get out and garden as much, has a hard time reading, writing, cooking and using her technology devices.

She still volunteers and does a lot of reading on her computer and keeping track of files for the company that she volunteers for. Ms. Goins was referred to NewView Oklahoma to help assist her in each of these areas. A therapist from NewView Oklahoma was able to visit in her home. She was then able to guide Ms.Goins on lighting, magnification, contrast, organization and help with her electronic devices.

Through the ABLE Tech loan program, her therapist was able to let her borrow several items to help her decide on which devices would help her get back to doing the tasks that she enjoys, especially volunteering.
