Adults with low vision may have problems seeing at night or in low-light settings or may not be able to see well even with plenty of light and contrast. Low vision may make it hard to complete many activities including bathing, dressing, shopping and medication management. Adults may also experience safety risks during daily tasks such as meal preparation and walking.
Occupational therapists at UM Baltimore Washington Medical Center can determine how vision perception problems impact your daily life. They can teach improved use of remaining functional vision to complete important activities. Occupational therapists can also offer environmental changes, special equipment, and activity adaptations, all of which may increase your independence, safety, and quality of life.
