2022-2023 Low Vision and Refraction Clinics
Clinics will be returning to In-Person!
WCBVI is offering in-person Low Vision and Refraction Clinics for the school year. The following locations have been selected:
- September 28 Wausau
- October 12 Eau Claire
- January 11 Milwaukee
- February 15 Madison or Janesville
Spots are limited! In order to reduce the number of people in the room at a time, only 4 students will be attending a clinic at each location.
The first 4 students with completed returned paperwork will secure a time slot at the clinic.
Up to 2 adult family members may accompany the student, as well as the student’s TVI or O&M
If unable to attend the clinic, parents or caregivers may attend virtually!
Low Vision and Refraction Clinic can include any of the following:
An optometrist exam, near vision functional evaluation, sun shade evaluation/distance vision evaluation, and assistive technology demonstration.
Student appointments are generally two hours long, but are dependent upon student needs. Clinic recommended equipment such as magnifiers, monoculars, and sun filters may be loaned to students for a short-term trial.
A student attending a clinic can have either a low vision evaluation or a refraction evaluation.
