Low Vision Services
Low Vision Clinics
We operate Low Vision Clinics in Brooklyn and Long Island (Hempstead, Huntington, and Sands Point). At these clinics, our doctors train patients on how to maximize the use of their remaining vision. Their instructions include how to best set up a home or work place. Helen Keller Services for the Blind also offers instructions in daily living tasks and vision rehabilitation with lenses which may help you see better.
Helen Keller Services for the Blind is the first organization to establish Low Vision Clinics as part of the overall care for persons with restricted vision. Since opening the clinics in 1953, thousands of children and adults have benefited from our eye care.
Anyone can make an appointment for the clinic—even normally sighted patients.
