We serve Veterans with visual limitations ranging from basic Low Vision issues to Total Blindness through all stages of the Rehabilitation Process. This can be for very basic assessment and training, case management, and referral to a Residential Blind Rehabilitation center for Training. This can be due to a variety of reasons, ranging from traumatic injury during armed conflict to age or health related issues.
