Advanced Visual Rehabilitation
Being visually disabled is a daily challenge for many children and adults alike. Many eye health problems and genetic conditions can cause visual disability, including glaucoma, macular degeneration, nystagmus, and more. If you or your child is living with a visual disability, you may have been told it's something you must learn to "live with," or that nothing can be done about your condition.
Visual rehabilitation is a type of therapy that utilizes advanced visual exercises and other treatments to help visually impaired patients reach their full visual potential. The focus of visual rehabilitation is to help patients achieve a higher quality of life, more independence, and a higher degree of self-esteem. Although vision is often not completely restored with visual rehabilitation, this type of therapy assists patients in achieving the best possible vision. Patients who have undergone visual rehabilitation have reported excellent results, including the restoration of some vision, the ability to use new techniques and equipment to aid their vision, and an overall improved sense of well being.
