NewView Oklahoma

An Oklahoma-based nonprofit, NewView Oklahoma works to empower blind and vision impaired people to achieve their maximum potential. To achieve this goal, we employ a three pronged approach of rehabilitation, fulfilling employment, and community outreach.

Our two full-service clinics provide compassionate, one-of-a-kind rehabilitation for individuals with impaired vision. In addition, we employ over 100 people with visual impairments in manufacturing and service careers. Finally, NewView Oklahoma works to build a community for adults and children living with visual impairments. To create this sense of community, we offer support groups, a dragon boating team, and summer camps.
