Persons with physical or developmental disabilities rely on their vision not only for learning and completing daily tasks, but also to enhance their quality of life.
Providing eye care to such persons starts with knowing which vision problems are most common with specific types of disabilities. Our experience with thousands of patients has shown us these types of vision problems. We use non-standard test procedures - many do not require verbal responses or concentration. Persons do not have to sit in a standard examination chair - our examination rooms accommodate wheelchairs and special equipment. Caregivers and family are encouraged to attend the examination.
Treatment is aimed at maximizing functional vision, and we will suggest practical options to be incorporated into daily activities.
