Low Vision Therapy

The Low Vision Therapy program at Gwinnett Medical Center’s Gwinnett SportsRehab helps individuals who experience vision loss caused by diabetes, glaucoma or macular degeneration that cannot be helped by standard interventions, such as glasses, contact lenses, medication or surgery.

Our therapists help individuals with low vision regain and maintain independent living skills by teaching compensatory methods and incorporating adaptive devices. Most clients experience an increased level of independence in just four to eight sessions.

Low vision therapy can help you:

  • Evaluate vision loss that impacts reading.
  • Learn visual techniques that compensate for vision problems.
  • Evaluate your home to promote safety and independence.
  • Learn to use advanced visual aids and adaptive equipment, such as magnifiers, talking watches and large print checks, books and telephones.

Low vision therapy is recommended for individuals who have trouble:

  • Managing diabetic equipment
  • Reading medicine bottle labels
  • Walking safely
  • Recognizing family and friends
  • Preparing meals
  • Writing checks
  • Enjoying hobbies
  • Watching television
