Low Vision

Low vision patients using a CCTVWhat Is Low Vision?

Low vision is any vision loss that cannot be returned to normal with glasses, contact lenses, surgery, or medication.

The low vision team at Blind and Vision Rehabilitation Services of Pittsburgh (BVRS) can help individuals with low vision. The team includes a specially trained optometrist who will give you a comprehensive examination and prescribe optical aids. You then will work with an occupational therapist who will teach you how to use your new optical tools.

Referrals to BVRS’ Low Vision Rehabilitation Services can be made by anyone requesting a low vision examination for themselves or another individual. We can assist you with financial needs and — if necessary — with transportation to and from appointments. Medicare and most insurances are accepted.

For more information on low vision services, please call the Office Manager at 412-368-4400 ext. 2221.
