The Frank Stein and Paul S. May Center for Low Vision Rehabilitation at California Pacific Medical Center helps people with low vision or partial vision loss. If you have a visual impairment, you may have difficulty performing daily activities such as reading, shopping, using a computer and preparing meals. Using the latest advancements in technology and training, doctors and therapists at the Center for Low Vision Rehabilitation develop a tailored program to assist you in maximizing your vision and leading a more independent life.
Low vision rehabilitation can help with:
- Writing financial transactions, including balancing accounts
- Preparing meals
- Engaging in hobbies such as sewing and knitting
- Reading more effectively using optical devices that compensate for vision loss
- Using computers and technology
- Safer mobility, including walking in familiar or unfamiliar areas
Vision rehabilitation can also help you learn compensatory visual skills, such as shifting images to a different part of the retinal anatomy. This training, combined with low-vision devices, can help you safely and independently complete daily activities that are now difficult because of vision loss.
