Vision Rehabilitation Service

Low vision or reduced vision refers to a condition of diminished visual performance which cannot be rectified by surgical or medical means or by optical correction. It may be caused by various conditions such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, optic atrophy, retinitis pigmentosa or other visual disorders.

The Vision Rehabilitation Clinic offers comprehensive low vision assessments and prescription of low vision devices which range from simple magnifiers and telescopes to complex computer adaptive technology such as closed circuit television (CCTVs). With the help of low vision devices, the remaining vision of people with low vision can be enhanced to cope with their daily tasks such as reading, writing and studying in order to improve their quality of life.

Often two to three visits may be necessary to complete the assessment, with each visit lasting for about 1 to 2 hours.
