Making Low Vision Liveable
|Some vision problems cannot, as yet, be
corrected. But there are things we can do to help people with low vision maintain
independent lifestyles. Vision Park will evaluate each individual to see what options are
indicated. If appropriate we will recommend low-vision therapy which enhances partial
vision through microscopic lenses, telescopes and sophisticated optical aids. Low-vision
aids do not restore sight, but they will help the visually impaired make the best use of
their existing vision.
We also encourage low-vision persons to make use of large-print books and magazines, books on cassette, closed circuit television, or special training. Other assistance is available through of a variety of organizations, such as the Iowa Radio Reading Information Service (IRIS) or the Iowa Department for the Blind and its mobility and independent living assistance programs.
