Vision Rehabilitation Therapy Page

What is a Certified Vision Rehabilitation Therapist (CVRT)? Essentially, a CVRT will work with you to identify how to adapt your daily routines to compensate for vision loss, even if no vision remains. As long as you have the willingness to explore alternative approaches, there are very few things which cannot be done. We move at your pace. A VRT will work with you as a partner to assess your needs and make recommendations. Together, you will identify what your priorities will be.
