Mission Statement
The Mission of Vision Resources of Central Pennsylvania is to support and promote the interests of people who are blind, visually impaired and otherwise disabled, and to provide blindness prevention services.
Vision Statement
Vision Resources of Central Pennsylvania is to be the premiere resource for blindness prevention services, and to maximize opportunities for individuals who are blind and visually impaired to maintain independence.

Volunteers Needed!

Vision Resources Volunteer Receptionist, Kelsi Bowman, has started a new job in her chosen field, and although we are very happy for her success, it leaves a vacancy at our front desk every Wednesday and Friday.  If you have some time to give on one of those days and would like to help out, all you need are some very basic reception skills, willingness to learn and a smile!  Contact Cheryl Cuddy at ccuddy@vrocp.org or 717-238-2531 for more information!

Vision Resources of Central Pennsylvania is proud of the fact that our Business Services division generates about 80% of the annual revenue necessary to fulfill our mission to the blind and visually impaired throughout Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin and Perry counties. Vision Resources is equally proud that our businesses provide employment and job training to individuals with disabilities, and we are able to compensate them at levels beginning at minimum wage. Together we are working to raise the quality of life for everyone in our region.

Protecting Your Eyes from Solar Radiation

The sun supports all life on our planet, but its life-giving rays also pose dangers.

The sun’s primary danger is in the form of Ultraviolet (UV) radiation. UV radiation is a component of solar radiation, but it can also be given off by artificial sources like welding machines, tanning beds and lasers.

Most are aware of the harm UV radiation can do to the skin, but many may not realize that exposure to UV radiation can harm the eyes or that other components of solar radiation can also affect vision.
