VISIONS is seeking blind individuals of all ages in all five boroughs of NYC, Westchester, Rockland or Long Island who lost or sustained damage due to storm Sandy to their vision rehabilitation equipment and/or a prescribed red and white long cane.
We will replace vision rehabilitation home management, personal management, etc. devices and equipment at no charge for any person of any age with proof of legal blindness or severe vision loss. We cannot replace furniture, beds, computers or appliances.
For more information or to make a referral, send us an e-mail at

We will be collecting demographic information and proof of legal blindness or severe vision loss. We have received private grant funding for this purpose to ease the burden and stress on blind individuals that lost vision rehabilitation equipment or had their homes damaged or destroyed.
Our phones and fax are still out at Greenwich Street so email is the best way to reach us.Due to damage from Hurricane Sandy, VISIONS offices are currently without phone service. We apologize for the inconvenience. If you need to reach us, please e-mail us at and we will respond to your inquiry as soon as possible.
