COMPREHENSIVE LOW VISION EVALUATION

Decreased vision does not have to lead to loss of independence.  The goal of the Life Skills Clinic’s  Low Vision Service is to provide a way for people who have low vision to maintain a full and productive lifestyle.  Our treatment focus is on how to become more independent using a person’s remaining vision.  We have a Low Vision Optometrist and Occupational Therapists who are also Certified Low Vision Therapists on staff.
