Low Vision Rehabilitation Center at Stony Point is central Virginia's only full-time private low vision rehabilitation center. Since 1998 we have been helping the vision impaired in Richmond resume their daily living activities, regain their independence, and improve their quality of life. At the Low Vision Center at Stony Point we know that your vision is important to you and that losing your vision may be devastating. We will work with you to regain the ability to do your daily activities in a caring and compassionate environment.
If you have Low Vision then you have a vision impairment that is not correctable by surgery, laser, or other medical intervention. With many eye conditions your vision impairment is permanent. Low Vision Rehabilitation is the process of maximizing your vision using optical and non-optical aids to improve your independence and quality of life in spite of vision loss. We will also teach you techniques to better use your remaining vision to improve your ability to use the prescribed low vision aids.
Low Vision Rehabilitation is not a cure for your eye condition. We do not have a way to make your eye disease (macular degeneration, glaucoma, etc) go away. We will work with you to maximize your vision using optical aids (glasses, magnifiers, etc.) to help you improve your independence and quality of life.

You should have a Low Vision visit when you are having functional vision complaints: difficulty reading, writing, driving, seeing a computer or cooking. You do not need to be legally blind. We have seen patients with 20/20 (but still having functional complaints) as well as totally blind individuals. There is no vision limit to what vision can be evaluated in our Center. In general, the earlier you are seen the better you do with rehabilitation.
You may also call us directly at 804-545-9435 to schedule an appointment or you may be referred to us by your primary care eye doctor (ophthalmologist or optometrist).
Prior to your visit it is helpful for our doctor to have your previous eye records from your primary eye doctor. It would be our pleasure to contact your primary eye doctor to obtain those records. Simply let us know.
If your medical insurance requires a referral to see a specialist, then you will need to get a referral from your primary care provider to be seen by us. Simply call your primary care provider (not your primary eye doctor) for the referral.
