The low vision clinic empowers those with vision loss to regain independence by providing education about vision loss, rehabilitation training, and appropriate assistive technology. Our clinics are held regularly in Anchorage and in Wasilla. A typical appointment has the individual meet with our low vision optometrist who will provide recommendations on devices for magnification, reducing glare, and other ways to optimize useable vision. The client then meets with the low vision therapist and has the opportunity to learn about and try low vision devices such as handheld magnifiers, screen readers, and many others to increase independence with daily tasks. For our low vision clinics in Anchorage and the Mat-Su Valley, a doctor referral is preferred.
