About NewView Oklahoma Low Vision Centers:
NewView Oklahoma, Inc. seeks to empower blind and vision-impaired individuals to achieve their maximum potential through rehabilitation, employment, and community outreach. We seek to accomplish this mission through our two comprehensive low vision centers, which provide one-of-a-kind vision rehabilitation services for individuals living with blindness and vision loss. The clinics offer assessments and low vision solutions and devices to people with impaired vision that cannot be corrected with glasses, surgery or medication.
Through low vision rehabilitation, NewView works to keep children in school, adults at work, and senior citizens living independently in their homes. NewView Oklahoma is the state's leading employer of individuals who are blind and visually impaired, providing nearly 150 jobs through in-house manufacturing positions, administrative, management, rehabilitation professionals, and a growing number of service contracts. We also offer community programs for people of all ages living with blindness and visual impairments including art classes, a dragon boating team, summer camps and support groups.

Partnership Success Story - OKC
Mr. Gilbert is a 46-year-old who entered the MOVE Program through NewView Oklahoma. The MOVE Program is a specialized training to help individuals learn necessary skills to go back to work, enter the workforce, or go back to school. For 90 days Mr. Gilbert received Occupational Therapy, Assistive Technology (AT) and Orientation and Mobility services and gained skills and training to be more independent. During this time, NewView therapists were able to assist Mr. Gilbert with training in mobility, cooking, cleaning, finances, JAWS training on his computer and many other daily living skills. With access to AT through the ABLE Tech partnership, the therapists at NewView were able to show Mr. Gilbert different types of accessibility equipment to help with reading mail, magazines, menus, currency, cooking instructions and much more. Mr. Gilbert recently graduated from the MOVE Program and stated: “As I reflect on these last 4 months, I just have to be speechless of how the knowledge is being absorbed into body, mind, and soul. Knowledge that can never be broken or forgotten. You know for many years I've sat under some strict instructors, but none that were willing to sit down and explain these things to me. Not just how, but why. I just feel like something good is about to happen. The team at NewView has done what no other teacher could do with me and that, my friend is saying something!“
