The purpose of Vision Rehabilitation Center of the Ozarks (VRCO) is to support the needs of those in southwest Missouri experiencing vision loss by providing quality care and specialized services to people of all ages regardless of their ability to pay. We are dedicated to providing people with vision loss an opportunity to live to their potential and have a more independent life. Our mission is to be the Ozarks' leader in improving the quality of life for people of all ages with vision impairments.
VRCO was established in 2010 as an independent, non-profit organization. It enjoys broad community support from the medical community, Missouri State University, Drury University, and community leaders. In the summer of 2010, retired ophthalmologist Dr. Don Beisner and his wife, Judy, gifted VRCO with the Beisner Vision Rehabilitation Center. In this outstanding facility, we intend to build a comprehensive vision rehabilitation program that is second to none.
