Advanced Low Vision Clinic

Mission

The mission of Low Vision Clinic Services is to coordinate a healthcare service delivery system that provides a continuum of care for blinded and low vision veterans extending from their home environment to the local VA facility and to the appropriate rehabilitation setting. These services include adjustment to vision loss, counseling, patient and family education, benefits analysis, comprehensive residential inpatient training, outpatient rehabilitation services, the provision of assistive technology, and teaching and research.

Vision

Advanced Low Vision Clinic will provide high quality care in a timely and appropriate manner enabling blinded and low vision Veterans to acquire the skills and capabilities necessary for the development of personal independence and emotional stability.

The Low Vision Clinic is composed of a Low Vision Optometrist, Low Vision Therapist and an Orientation and Mobility Specialist. Veterans are assisted with learning to use their remaining vision through a variety of focal techniques which includes low vision aids. Veterans are also assisted with learning techniques to safely and efficiently complete activities of daily living. In Orientation and Mobility, Veterans learn to travel safely through their environment using a long cane or other assistive devices.

Eligibility

Request a referral from your Eye Care Specialist/Primary Care Physician. Veterans must have an up to date eye exam (within 1 year) or previous diagnosis of legal blindness.
