Low Vision Rehabilitation
Vision disorders are the 4th most common disability in the United States.
Vision Rehabilitation is a new therapy product line developed for people of all ages with chronic and acute vision difficulties. Occupational Therapists work with clients who have glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, double vision, cataracts, occulomotor deficits, diabetic retinopathy, blindness, and visual field cuts. We work closely with our post-concussion team for complaints of visual changes following a concussion. The goal of the program is to allow people with low or impaired vision to live productive and satisfying lives as independently as possible. The program is not specific to any age or specific condition.
Our pediatric therapists focus on how the visual information can impact age appropriate delays; they treat the visual cause of delay as well as the age appropriate goals. We can focus on advancing daily living skills for pediatrics and teenagers who have low vision, visual motor difficulties, or visual perception challenges.
Despite multiple disabilities, approximately two–thirds of older adults with visual impairment live in their own homes, and most of them live alone. We can provide home assessments to assure continued independence and safety in the home through specific low vision modifications and recommendation.
We offer this program at our Muskegon, Grand Haven and Grand Rapids clinics!
Our Occupational Therapy Director, Shannon Davis, is currently attending a Low Vision Specialty graduate program.
