Low Vision Therapy

Low vision rehabilitation therapy at Oleander Rehabilitation helps those recovering from telescopic implant eye surgery regain independence and learn to perform daily tasks again.

Telescopic implant surgery is a procedure in which a small telescope is placed into the eye to restore sight in those with age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of vision loss and blindness among people age 65 and older. The implant takes the place of the patient’s own lens and remains in the eye permanently, helping improve vision.

Therapists at Oleander Rehabilitation work with patients, training them to make the eye with the telescope the dominant eye, so they can get back to seeing their families, managing household tasks, and enjoying their lives.
