Designed to treat visual-motor and cognitive-perception impairments, the remedial vision rehabilitation program uses occupation-based therapy to improve performance in important daily activities such as self-care, leisure activities, and vocational skills - improving the overall quality of life.
What We Offer
Following a physician referral for vision evaluation and treatments, patients will receive specialized functional vision screening conducted by an occupational therapist with specialty certification in remedial vision rehabilitation. A treatment plan is then customized to assist the patient in meeting his/her individual rehabilitation goals. Remedial vision rehabilitation at MossRehab might include the following:
- Functional vision screening including assessment of visual acuity, motor fusion, eye alignment, accommodation, ocular motor skills, visual fields, and visual information processing
- Individualized treatment plans and home exercise programs
- Incorporation of specialized vision rehabilitation equipment
- Integration of the Sanet Vision Integrator (SVI), a high-technology instrument designed for enhancing visual performance. Activities can be tailored to each client to work on their needs: eye movements, eye/hand coordination, visual memory, and visual/auditory integration
