Low Vision Support Services

Many seniors are affected by low vision due to macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, cataracts and other eye conditions.  There are numerous adaptive aids and rehabilitation techniques available to assist seniors in living more safely and more independently despite their vision loss.  Cleveland Sight Center social workers are available for meetings at the Geauga County Multi-Purpose Senior Center or at individual homes to review services that will help people with low vision.  A Low Vision Support Group is held on the second Monday of each month at the Multi-Purpose Senior Center.  This group is an important resource for seniors to share experiences and insights with others facing similar challenges associated with their vision.  Please call (216) 791-8118 or visit clevelandsightcenter.org to learn more.
