Low Vision Rehabilitation

Low Vision Rehabilitation is the standard of care for people that have vision loss. If you, or someone you know, suffers from a vision impairment, ask your doctor of optometry about low-vision rehabilitation. A doctor of optometry who provides low-vision rehabilitative services can help people with low vision regain their independence and improve their quality of life.

People with low vision can learn a variety of techniques to help them perform daily activities with their remaining vision. Government and private programs offer educational and vocational counseling, occupational therapy, rehabilitation training and more.

Since 1999, both the American Optometric Association and the American Academy of Ophthalmology have called for Medicare to cover low-vision rehabilitation services. Many Medicare carriers now have policies that cover some vision rehabilitation services. Ask your doctor of optometry's office about this type of coverage.

Help is available today. Find out from your doctor of optometry how low-vision rehabilitation can make all the difference in your daily life.
