NewView Oklahoma Low Vision Centers

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.

Jacoby

Partnership Success Story - Tulsa

Jacoby, a first-grade student at Woodward Public Schools, has a vision impairment and is learning to fluently read braille. He loves to attend school with his peers and enjoys being independent. NewView Oklahoma, through a partnership with ABLE Tech’s Demonstration and Short-Term Loan Program, has been able to provide him resources he otherwise may not have had. He has more learning opportunities now and is gaining confidence. ABLE Tech and NewView Oklahoma love seeing the difference being made in big ways!

Rochelle

Partnership Success Story - OKC

Rochelle is a fun-loving and independent lady from Oklahoma City.  When cooking became too difficult for her to perform safely due to her low vision, she started eating out which created issues with safely controlling her diabetes. Through demonstrations with New View, an ABLE Tech partner, Rochelle was shown several devices to help her stay safe in the kitchen with cutting and being able to set her stove and oven properly. She was able to trial equipment through ABLE Tech’s Short-Term Loan Program in partnership with NewView. She also attended classes provided by NewView to assist with education on diabetes and is now well on her way to eating healthier.

Due to Rochelle’s low income, NewView was also able to assist her through a grant with some of the equipment that allowed her to get the cooking and reading equipment she would not otherwise be able to afford. Rochelle was so excited about the options to assist her with making her own meals and being able to take cooking back into her own hands.
