Meet Ronnie

Ronnie shares about his experience with New Vision and how his training helped him re-gain his independence.
A checklist including: get out and walk, not run into walls, cook like I love to do, fill my own medicine, cut my own steak
Please consider making a donation to help Ronnie and others like him learn the skills they need to overcome vision loss.

Vision loss is not the end

Kessler is three years old — and is totally blind. With the help of New Vision for Independence, Kessler is learning to interact with his world a little differently. He can continue to learn and thrive on his journey toward independence.
