The Bucks County Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired is a private, non-profit agency located in Newtown PA.
Our Vision is rich, vibrant and independent lives for the blind or visually impaired.
Our Mission is to provide resources, answers and support for people with blindness or other visual impairment that maximize their ability to meet life’s daily challenges and realize their continued self-worth and value to our community.
We Help Clients Prepare for and Manage their Vision Loss by creating individualized service plans that facilitate goal achievement. In partnership with our clients, our professional staff identifies the right combination of services, vision evaluations, assistive technology, education, resources and support needed for personal success.
We Educate our Community and Raise Public Awareness by conducting free vision screenings to adults and preschool children that reinforce the need for regular professional eye examinations. We offer presentations that address symptoms and treatments for eye diseases, causes, implications and prevention of vision loss and teach best practices to support people with visual impairments.

Specific programs may have additional eligibility requirements as identified by funding source. There is no charge for most of our services.
