At CABVI, we know that remaining vision is usable vision, and our mission with Low Vision is to help people make the most of the vision they have. CABVI has low vision specialists, optometrists and ophthalmologists, who are specially certified to provide: evaluation of your eyesight, prescriptions for low vision optical aids and devices, recommendations for special adaptive devices, and instruction to help you adjust to, and get the maximum benefit from, your new adaptive devices and techniques.

Through those techniques, follow-up care, additional training, and adaptation skills, CABVI consumers enjoy a marked improvement in the quality of their lives.

Once you have the best low vision device for your needs, there is so much more we can provide.  CABVI’s Sight Shoppe sells a vast array of equipment to help you maintain independence while modifying your home, school or work environment.
