The Lighthouse of Houston offers a variety of healthcare services to support individuals who are blind or visually impaired. These services include a Vision Clinic, Diabetes Education, Behavior Health Services and Support Groups.
The Vision Rehabilitation Clinic provides low vision evaluations, adaptive visual aids, training and education to those with impaired vision. Services are performed by a board-certified Optometrist specializing in the assessment and management of the rehabilitation needs of the visually impaired.
When a person loses their vision, mental health can often be impacted. The Behavioral Health Services Department has licensed clinicians who specialize in the treatment of various mental health disorders associated with vision loss.
Support groups can provide a network of support for people who have blindness or low vision. Our Behavior Health Department hosts weekly support groups to discuss various mental health topics adapted to those with vision loss. We also host a Diabetes support group that meets once a month as well. Both support groups are being held virtually at this time.
It all starts with education and the Lighthouse of Houston provides education and training to individuals who are visually impaired or blind.
The Lighthouse of Houston offers a variety of community and recreational programs for youth and adults who are blind or visually impaired.
