Center for the Partially Sighted

about

Established in 1978, The Center for the Partially Sighted was a pioneer in vision care, developing one of the first rehabilitation centers specifically for people with low vision. The mission of the Center is to help partially sighted people use their remaining vision, together with low vision devices when appropriate, to function as independently as possible. Optometrists, clinical psychologists, orientation and mobility specialists, and rehabilitation educators provide services for partially sighted individuals of all ages and their families. In addition, the Center trains professionals and paraprofessionals in low vision rehabilitation. Less than 10% of those diagnosed in the United States with severe and permanent vision impairment are functionally blind. The vast majority, over 90%, is partially sighted (remaining vision can become functional with the use of visual aids and rehabilitation techniques). Even among the legally blind, 75% have useable vision.
