Occupational Therapy for Low Vision

Be safely independent - Rice Rehab Center provides low vision rehabilitation through outpatient occupational therapy. If you've experience visual loss, this program can teach you how to safely and independently complete everyday tasks.

What is low vision?

Low vision is a visual impairment that limits your safety and independence in daily activities. There are many different conditions that can cause low vision, including diabetes, glaucoma, or macular degeneration.

Are daily tasks a challenge?

People with low vision may find daily activities difficult - things like:

  • Walking safely up stairs, along curbs, or through doorways
  • Reading medicine labels
  • Preparing meals
  • Writing checks at the store
  • Identifying coins and bills
  • Enjoying hobbies
  • Managing diabetic equipment
  • Using dials on microwave, stove, or oven
  • Reading
  • Watching television
  • Completing everyday tasks, such as dressing, shaving, etc.
  • Using the telephone

How can occupation therapy help you?

Occupational Therapy can:

  • Teach you how to use your remaining vision as efficiently as possible
  • Help change activities as they can be done with less vision
  • Teach you to use adaptive equipment that will aid with vision loss
  • Teach you how to adjust in your home and in the community
