Low Vision Clinics
Persons who have a reduced visual acuity that interferes with educational and day-to-day activities are sometimes referred to as having low vision. As many as 90% of the youth in Iowa who have been identified as having a visual impairment have some degree of usable vision. Several types of low vision devices and tools are available to children with low vision, as well as programming information that may assist these students in overcoming some of their visual difficulties.
