Brief Description

The mission of the Kellogg Eye Center is to improve the quality of life for those with low vision, through the services of a multidisciplinary team of ophthalmologists, optometrists and occupational therapists. These specialists assess patients' vision, advise them on useful adaptive devices, and help them adapt their homes and daily routines so that they can function more independently.

Kellogg's Low Vision and Visual Rehabilitation Service helps patients with vision loss ranging from mild visual impairment to legal blindness. Kellogg offers the services of an occupational therapist who works with patients to enhance independence in daily activities. Patients receive help in using aids that assist in functional activities, such as financial management (writing checks, paying bills), meal preparation, vocational needs, and hobbies.

Hours of operation: Mon.-Fri. 8:00 AM-5:00 PM.
Geographic area served: Michigan.
Publications: Low Vision Resource Guide.
