Vision Rehabilitation at Spaulding Cape Cod (SCC)
Vision loss that cannot be treated, either surgically or medically, can be a difficult diagnosis to accept. We understand. That’s why our rehabilitation program and therapy options are designed to bring you independence, hope, and your best quality of life.
We assess and treat people who have experienced vision loss from disease, stroke, and traumatic brain injury. People with macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy may also benefit from our program.
Spaulding's Approach to Vision Rehabilitation
Spaulding’s vision rehabilitation program begins with a comprehensive evaluation by an experienced optometrist and occupational therapists that have specialized in low vision care. Together, they’ll develop an individualized treatment plan based upon your needs and goals.
Training on optical devices (magnifiers, filters) as well as non-optical aids (large-print materials, audio tapes, special lighting, and closed circuit reading) is a key component to the program. Additionally, patients receive training in adaptive strategies designed to maximize independent living.
