Low Vision Rehabilitation Clinic


The Augusta University Low Vision Rehabilitation Clinic offers
assessmenLow Vision Clinict services and coping strategies for people with low vision to increase their safety and independence. Together, we explore functional solutions that help overcome the challenge of performing everyday activities.

Low vision affects one in six American adults and two-thirds of people over 65. It's often caused by macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, or glaucoma.

At Augusta University, we take an innovative, personalized approach based on each person's specific goals and individual interests and skills. By using adaptive equipment, making simple home modifications, and adjusting activities, remaining vision can be maximized. We introduce available resources and schedule training sessions on mobility, reading and writing, lighting and contrast, glare control, cooking, shopping, sewing and crafts, community activities, and more.

The Low Vision Rehabilitation Clinic is housed in the Augusta University College of Allied Health Sciences Department of Occupational Therapy in collaboration with the AU Medical Center Department of Ophthalmology and the Augusta University Culver Vision Discovery Institute. Referral  from an ophthalmologist, optometrist, or primary care physician is required.
