    Low vision means that even with regular glasses, contact lenses, medicine, or surgery, people find everyday tasks difficult to do. Reading the mail, shopping, cooking, and writing can seem challenging. The chief causes of vision loss in older people are age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, cataract, and glaucoma. Among younger Americans, low vision is most often caused by inherited eye conditions, infectious and autoimmune eye disease, or trauma.

     Our vision rehabilitation service provides expert solutions for all the challenges that individuals with visual impairments face. If a vision loss has made it hard to do a simple task, read mail, pay bills, recognize family and friends, we can help. Our vision rehabilitation services allow people to lead a more productive life.
