A low-vision evaluation may also include consultations with specialists such as an occupational therapist or a social worker who can provide counseling and training on dealing with reduced vision to help you keep your quality of life as much as possible. If you are working with your primary care doctor, the consultations will also include an eye care specialist such as an ophthalmologist or optometrist. Your own eye doctor may refer you to another who specializes in low-vision evaluation and rehabilitation.
To understand your home environment and your needs, a low-vision evaluation may also include home visits by your doctor or by rehabilitation specialists.
When the evaluation is complete, you and your doctor will be able to identify ways for you to make the best use of your remaining vision.
