Visual rehabilitation helps people of all ages with decreased vision that cannot be corrected with glasses or surgery learn to use their remaining sight.
Your visual rehabilitation may include:
- An assessment by an occupational therapist.
- Training in ways to successfully use your remaining vision.
- Training in the use of equipment like closed-circuit televisions, computer programs and electronic reading programs.
- Training in the use of magnifiers, telescopes and reading glasses to better see detail when reading, writing or watching television.
- Training in ways to more easily do activities like reading bills, writing checks and preparing meals.
- On-site assessment of your home or workplace.
- Recommendations for lighting and other ways to increase safety, efficiency and independence.
- Eye examination and low vision refraction when needed.
