Low Vision Clinic

The Low Vision Clinic at CTSB is open every Monday and Wednesday from 08h00 - 13h00.

Low vision is vision loss that makes it hard to do everyday activities. The vision loss cannot be corrected with ordinary glasses, contact lenses, or surgery. Low vision can include blind spots, poor night vision, limited side vision and/or blurry vision.

Clients will have access to an optometrist, occupational therapist, social worker, and orientation & mobility instructor.

At our clinic the client is helped to make the best of their remaining vision. Advice will be given and aids will be recommended. We have a variety of Low Vision Aids that can be purchased – magnifiers, tinted lenses, telescopes, special task lighting to name a few.
