Low Vision Rehabilitation


Low vision is visual impairment or loss that cannot be corrected by conventional glasses, contact lenses, surgery or medicine. Among adults over 45 years of age, the leading causes of low vision include age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy.

Typically, eye diseases cause one or more of the following symptoms:

  • a loss of ability to see detail (visual acuity)

  • a loss of side or peripheral vision (visual field)

  • constant double vision (diplopia)

  • an inability to navigate steps or the edge of curbs (contrast sensitivity)

  • an inability to distinguish colors

Our rehabilitation specialists work with you to ensure you develop the skills and strategies necessary to help you achieve whatever vision-related goals you set for yourself.

While low vision rehabilitation cannot restore lost sight, it can make the most of the existing sight you do have, and it can equip you with the techniques necessary to maintain an independent lifestyle. Low vision rehabilitation will help you cope with vision loss, travel safely, take care of your home, meet your career objectives and enjoy leisure activities. Low vision rehab helps you continue to do what you want to do.
