Florence Maxwell Low Vision Clinic
The Florence Maxwell Low Vision Clinic helps people ages five years and older who are experiencing low vision.
How do you know if you need a low vision evaluation? Ask yourself the following questions. If you respond yes to any of them, then you are a good candidate for low vision services.
Are you having difficulty…
- Seeing faces?
- Reading newspapers and magazines?
- Reading bills, mail and medication bottles?
- Managing your finances?
- Signing your name?
- Using your computer?
- Watching TV?
The ways our Florence Maxwell Low Vision Clinic can help include:
- A specially trained optometrist will evaluate your usable sight and make recommendations for enhancing your quality of life and independence.
- An occupational therapist (OT) with a specialty in low vision will introduce you to lighting and magnification options for reading, writing and performing daily activities that best fit your goals and needs.
- We will help you learn to use devices and techniques for everyday activities such as meal preparation, financial management and medication organization.
- We will recommend other CVI services that can help you maintain your independence and continue activities you enjoy.
