Low Vision

Persons with a vision loss or low vision can have mild, moderate, or severe impairments that can impact their jobs, hobbies, independence, and the ability to read.


There are Optometrists who are specially trained to provide low vision examinations and prescribe low vision aids that allow patients to maximize their remaining sight. In addition low vision centers provide additional rehabilitation services that may include: orientation and mobility training, personal and home management skills, vocational planning, and support groups.
