The Iris Network campus also boasts a low vision clinic staffed by CLVTs, an ophthalmologist, optometrists and an OT.
Designed to deliver cutting edge vision rehabilitation, the Center opened in 2015. It has everything from a model apartment to learn independent living skills to a technology center where participants will learn how to integrate technology into every facet of their lives.
The campus and dormitory are in Portland, Maine. Situated on Maine’s rocky southern coast, Portland is the business and cultural capital of Maine. The dormitory is a historic home that provides a cozy, home-like, group living community. The inside was renovated in 2015. After-hour recreational activities are organized several times a week.
