The Iris Network Low Vision Clinic has what you need

• Discover the extent and cause of your vision loss.

• Make use of remaining usable vision with tools and training tailored to your needs.

The Iris Network Low Vision Clinic has eye doctors, occupational therapists, and vision rehabilitation therapists who can assist you in maximizing your remaining vision. Our experts will recommend lighting and glare solutions for your home or place of work. You can receive training in adaptive techniques and learn about devices (writing guides, magnifiers, video magnifiers, talking pill bottles, etc.) and new technologies that will help you resume your daily activities safely and independently. 

Nearly 14 million Americans, about one out of every 20 people, have low vision. Over the age of 70, one in three people will be living with low vision. You, or someone you know, could benefit from learning about low vision. The Low Vision Clinic can assist and empower people with low vision to achieve their maximum level of independence and community integration. 

Low vision is vision that cannot be corrected further through the use of glasses, contact lenses, medicine or surgery. However, there is remaining, usable vision. The specialty of low vision within the field of ophthalmology focuses on identifying, defining and optimizing the use of this remaining usable vision. 

At The Iris Network’s Low Vision Clinic, a low vision evaluation by an eye doctor will identify your best available remaining vision.  Our occupational and vision rehabilitation therapy services will assist you in maximizing your remaining vision and provide training specific to your daily needs and activities.
