SAME DEDICATION TO ADVANCING
THE LIVES OF THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED.

In response to the rapidly evolving situation and spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and for the safety of our clients and staff, Olmsted Center for Sight/VIA is temporarily closed to the public.

 

We have also ceased any/all face-to-face contact with our consumers both internally and in the community until further notice.

 

For any question related to your current services, please call us at 882-1025.

 

For information related to community resources please dial 2-1-1.

OLMSTED CENTER FOR SIGHT IS NOW VIA.

To better serve the visually impaired community, we have decided to change our name, our brand, how we talk to the public, and, especially, the people we serve. It’s a change that will enable us to better tell the story of this organization and the dedicated people who work tirelessly to help guide the visually impaired along their journey to independence and a fulfilling life.

In the near future, we will be launching a new website to herald our new brand. This website will be an invaluable pathway for the visually impaired and their loved ones to learn about the resources available to them.
