Columbus Community Hospital's Rehabilitative Services at the Columbus Wellness Center offers on-site visual therapy that uses the latest technology to provide exemplary care to local patients. Our occupational therapists (OT) offer specialized therapy for vision challenges caused by a neurological event or low vision, including difficulties with:
- Seeing objects close up
- Locating items in the periphery
- Interacting in a busy environment
- Other vision challenges
Our OTs meet with patients to conduct comprehensive evaluations and provide tools and techniques that can help improve their patients' visual performance with daily activities.
Our OTs use state-of-the-art technology, including the Senaptec Sensory Station, which can assess 10 sensory parameters and provide training on all these skills. The system helps our OTs determine an individual's strengths and opportunities to improve sensory performance. Then a custom training plan for the areas that need improvement is created. The technology uses activities that are designed to help people improve hand-eye coordination, perception, near-far quickness, depth perception and more.
We also offer visual rehabilitation through targeted visual activities to address specific patient goals such as:
- Returning to work
- Returning to sports
- Using the computer or phone
- Improving school performance
