Vision Rehabilitation

Many patients can benefit from vision rehabilitation services with an occupational therapist (O.T.). When appropriate, I will recommend in-home follow up with a vision rehab O.T. The occupational therapist provides patients with a home safety, lighting, and glare assessment, will address medications management, and will suggest strategies and aids for improving visual comfort and functioning inside and outside of the home. The O.T. will also provide training with low vision devices and aids to optimize the patient's ability to use the devices effectively. 

A patient may also benefit from additional services, such as orientation & mobility training, a low vision support group, a volunteer, or counseling. I am able to direct patients and families to these services and to other community resources, such as the Perkins Talking Books Library and the Carroll Center.
