A low vision impairment is often severe enough to limit the ability of people to perform basic activities of daily living. Our goal is to help persons with low vision age in place and be able to participate in the activities that they need and want to do! Since April of 2011, we have provide over 1,000 low vision treatment sessions to persons in the Triangle area. We are now servicing  Wake, Durham, Orange, Guilford and Forsyth counties (with some limitations). 

Our occupational therapists complete specialized training in low vision including many graduates of the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s only comprehensive low vision rehab graduate certificate for OTs in the US! Our therapists are active in the low vision community, attending workshops and conferences, participating in low vision support groups and focusing on evidence-based practice. ​

Safety can be at risk when it is necessary to:
  • Dial emergency phone numbers, such as 911
  • Identify medications correctly
  • Keep track of glucose (sugar) levels
  • Use knives to chop and slice foods
  • Identify spoiled food or water on the floor
  • Judge the depth of stairs and curbs which can lead to falls

If you or your family member want to “Age in Place”, we can help  make that happen!

By participating in an occupational therapy low vision program, older adults
 with visual impairment can learn to safely perform daily tasks made
 difficult or impossible by low vision—increasing the chances that they can
 remain in their homes for the rest of their lives

Occupational therapy makes it easier to manage your:  
  • Home
  • Medications
  • Self care
  • Communication 
  • and other activities of daily living, as well as the emotional adjustment to vision loss.

  • Modify the ways you do your activities, maximizing your remaining vision, such as teach eccentric viewing techniques
  • Modify your home environment to make it easier and safer to do your daily activities, such as improve lighting

Generally, our OT services for low vision are completed within 10 sessions and are covered by most insurance companies including Medicare.
