Low Vision Services & Vision Rehab

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.

Certified Low Vision Therapists (CLVT) help you to maximize your remaining vision. We want to help you use your vision effectively. People often find that the right kind of lighting and the right sized print help them to read and write faster and with greater ease. There are both high and low tech solutions that you and your CLVT will explore. As long as you have the willingness to explore alternative approaches, there are very few things which cannot be done. 

As your partner in the process, your CLVT will assess your needs and make recommendations. We move at your pace. Together, you will identify the goals you want to focus on and the pace you need to achieve them.
