San Antonio Lighthouse for the Blind
Through a strong partnership with the San Antonio Lighthouse for the Blind, UIWRSO has recently opened a state-of-the-art Low Vision clinic. The Low Vision and Vision Rehabilitation Service provide evaluation, treatment, and management of patients with visual impairment to allow the patient to have some meaningful visual function and to be able to live independently. Fourth-year interns provide direct patient care in the determination, dispensing, and training for low vision devices such as telescopes, magnifiers, computerized visual aids, and spectacle-mounted devices. The Service also provides orientation training, rehabilitation, and counseling to assist the low vision patient with mobility, use of special equipment, and devices to maximum remaining visual abilities.
