Low Vision Therapy
Low vision is considered a permanent loss of vision that doesn’t improve with eyeglasses, medicine or surgery, and typically interferes with daily activities such as reading and watching TV. LVS Rehab specializes in personalized, in-home, comprehensive low vision rehabilitation for ages 8 to 80 plus. Typically, the earlier you receive low vision services, the better the outcome.
You may be a potential candidate for LVT if you have difficulty with any of the following:
Reading newspapers, books or recipes
Signing your name
Using a cell phone
Setting the washer & dryer or other appliances
Managing mail, bills or prescriptions
How Does It Work?
