Outreach Services Upstate NYOutreach is an important community service we provide in Upstate NY at CABVI. Representatives speak to a variety of community organizations or make presentations to seniors groups or fraternal clubs throughout our service area.

We love telling the CABVI story.


A member of our staff, will come to your organization, home, or community venue, free of charge, and explain how the vision rehabilitation process works. We demonstrate how our agency can help you with the challenges you maybe facing due to vision loss. It is CABVI’s mission to assist people in Upstate NY who are blind or visually impaired to achieve their highest levels of independence and continue to live healthy, successful lives.

Sight Shoppe on the Move

As part of CABVI’s public education effort, we provide products that become useful tools on the road to maintaining your independence. With Sight Shoppe on the Move a member of our highly skilled, professional staff will demonstrate the use of technologically advanced adaptive equipment.

There are many useful tools available for purchase in Upstate NY, some of which include:

  • Liquid level identifiers that can help determine when your glass is full
  • Wooden toaster tongs, which help you get hot items out of the toaster
  • Talking watches with large print faces
  • Large print bingo cards and playing cards for your recreational needs
  • Needle threaders, that, well, help you thread a needle!
