Adult Low Vision Program

Adult patient reads a screen during a low vision evaluationLow vision is a term used to describe visual impairment that cannot be corrected (20/70 or worse) despite the best glasses correction. Low vision can interfere with the ability to function in daily living, reading, driving, and activities you love to do.

It is possible for people with decreased vision to regain independence.  Low Vision Rehabilitation helps maximize remaining vision for individuals with permanent vision loss. When vision loss cannot be corrected by glasses, contacts, or surgery we can help you get back to the activities you enjoy using devices and technology. 

How can I schedule a low vision appointment?

To be scheduled for a low vision evaluation, patients must first be seen and referred by one of the physicians at the WVU Eye Institute.
