Low Vision Rehabilitation Center
We now offer a Low Vision Rehabilitation Center to serve the Ark-La-Tex area. Our center provides a full range of services and low vision products for people at all age levels, who are legally blind or low vision. The Center is a one-stop location with three distinct areas: the Low Vision Clinic - offering Low Vision Evaluations after referral from your eye care professional; Visual Aids Store - open daily to the general public offering the latest technology to enhance your remaining vision levels; and a Training Center - offering complete rehabilitation services and programs for all ages.
As an approved provider for Louisiana Rehabilitation Services, we teach clients the skills necessary to re-enter the workforce to include orientation and mobility training, Braille, independent living skills, computer navigation and other specific training to reach individual employment goals. We can also conduct low vision and assistive technology evaluations for LRS referred clients. Our staff will perform the necessary testing to determine what aids may help you improve your remaining vision. This center is the only complete source in the Ark- La-Tex area to address the needs of our visually challenged community.
The programs and activities of the Low Vision Rehabilitation Center are funded in part by generous grants from the following:
