Low Vision Services

Low vision exams and therapeutic services ..


For individuals wanting to learn Braille for reading and/or writing, all levels of Braille are taught. Some individuals prefer Braille only for identifying items (clothes, food, etc…) while others want to learn it as a complete communication system. When indicated or desired, the use of a slate and stylus are also taught. Learning the complete Braille system may require up to 6 months of individual lessons and requires independent practice.

Daily Living Skills

Our occupational therapy service is designed to assist clients in maximizing their remaining vision by providing training specific to daily needs and activities. Our low vision occupational therapists can identify the best techniques and equipment to improve a client’s level of independence. Occupational therapists provide training in basic daily living skills such as reading, writing, meal preparation, financial management, home safety and medication management.
