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. 

Eligibility for Services Any resident of Bucks County whose vision is corrected to no better than 20/70 or has a visual field of less than 20 degrees is eligible for services from BCABVI. Specific programs may have additional eligibility requirements as identified by funding source. There is no charge for most of our services.

Testimonials

Dear Board of Directors:

I have found that in spite of ups and downs, you can maintain balance and carry on your life in spite of your disabilities. I believe that when one door closes, another one opens. I have been a surgical nurse for the last 40 years. Before that, I served my country with the U.S. Navy as a medic. During my college years, I worked full-time as a correctional office with the Bucks County Prison and as a nursing assistant at Neshaminy Manor. I did what I loved and I loved what I did.

In February 1999, I had surgical intervention for breast cancer. I expected to return to work in July, but I was then diagnosed with cervical cancer. Radiation treatment followed and I developed diabetes and vision loss. I became a recluse and a mystery to my family and myself. All I knew was illness and depression. I had lost my independence and self esteem. I had always been the giver, not the taker!

The staff at the Bucks County Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired helped me to realize that I had choices and that there were options and resources out there for me. In spite of my blindness, I know now that I have will power, I have wisdom, and I have freedom of choice. I have empathy, I learned to care, and I learned to share. They helped me come from the dark to the light again.

I once again feel like a healthy human being.

Sincerely,
MG
