Occupational Visual Therapy Services

Our occupational therapy services

At the San Diego Center for the Blind, we also offer occupational therapy in conjunction with our Low Vision Clinic and our optometric services. These services are specifically designed to provide strategies on how to function at home, work and/or school environments.

Description of occupational therapy
An occupational therapist is rehabilitation professional who educates and trains individuals to increase their independence. Using the information from the low vision optometry evaluation, the occupational therapist teaches skills on how to use your remaining vision more effectively based on your specific goals. The first visit with the occupational therapist is an evaluation lasting approximately two hours and then you may be scheduled for additional training sessions lasting one to two hours.
