Neuro and low vision rehabilitation
Our rehabilitation services team offers a Neuro and Low Vision Program — the only therapy program of its kind in Southwest Virginia. The program's advanced therapy team evaluates and treats functional, vision-related problems caused by neurological disorders (including strokes and brain injuries), age-related changes, developmental issues or other medical conditions.
Visual rehabilitation, or neuro-optometric rehabilitation, can help with vision problems resulting from neurological disorders or nervous system trauma, including double vision, light sensitivity, visual inattention, poor visual information processing and spatial perception difficulty.
The goal of the program is to increase safety and independence for daily tasks in the home and the community. We offer a broad range of services to maximize the patient's remaining vision.
