During a visit to the VTR service, an in-depth report will be prepared. This report will explain any problems with the patient’s visual system and make recommendations for treatment.
In some cases, the use of eyeglasses, prism lenses
, vision therapy, optical/non-optical aids for low vision and/or specialized vision devices (including computer software) may be prescribed.
At times, referrals may be necessary to another specialist, including educational psychologist, occupational therapist, neurologist or reading specialist, for further evaluation or even treatment (such as surgery). The doctors in the VTR service will work closely with your referring doctor(s) to ensure that patients receive the best possible care.
