Who Can We Help

 

Safety and security is of utmost importance while driving. Those who have experienced vision loss due to a stroke or brain injury often have goals of returning to driving after their recovery.

We can enhance a patient’s understanding and comprehension of driving after vision loss, vision surgery or cognitive decline.

 

We help patients through the process of becoming more independent or maintaining their current level of independence.

 

Driving Simulator Features

 

•Our state-of-the-art equipment enables us to accommodate the driving conditions to best fit the patient’s needs.

 

•During the simulation we can change the season, weather conditions, and time of day.

 

•The settings can be adjusted to city driving or country driving.

 

•We can increase or decrease the traffic density, traffic behavior, and pedestrian density. This can help to improve the patients attention to surrounding activity.

 

•For patients with difficulty parking in their garage or parking spot at home or the office,  we can work on that too!

 

Our Staff

 

Our staff will work with primary medical doctors or eye care professionals

to provide patients with the best possible plan of care. Our staff will work

on improving overall vision skills utilized in daily activities and driving.
