How Low Vision Rehabilitation Works

The goal of Low Vision Rehabilitation is to help those with low or impaired vision live productive and satisfying lives as independently and safely as possible. Occupational Therapists work with patients who are challenged by a variety of vision conditions that impact their ability to function. These conditions may include,  but are not limited to:

  • glaucoma
  • macular degeneration
  • retinitis pigmentosa
  • diabetic retinopathy
  • other conditions where vision cannot be resolved with surgery or lenses

The Low Vision Rehabilitation program aims to keep individuals independent and safe while doing day-to-day activities in their own homes, despite the vision condition. Home assessments can also be conducted to provide recommendations on low-tech or high-tech home modifications to increase the ease of living and safety of an individual. Some key areas that are affected by low vision conditions include, but are not limited to:

  • reading
  • maintaining engagement in hobbies, such as knitting
  • organizing medications
  • navigating obstacles in your environment

Ivy Rehab Network occupational therapists can work with your low vision team to assure you have the correct lenses and magnifiers for your eyesight and help you learn the optimal way to apply their use in your daily life. Low vision occupational therapy can be a great compliment to physical therapy if your visual deficits are causing balance issues, difficulty seeing curb cuts and stairs, or if you have neck pain from utilizing poor posture in order to see.

Occupational therapists can also help address the visual deficits that may arise following a sudden neurologic event such as a concussion, brain injury, or stroke, which may cause oculomotor deficits, double vision, and visual field deficits. We will also work to address any visual perceptual, depth perception and spatial awareness issues that might arise secondary to your neurologic injury.
