- Clinical interest for patients
Dr. Lewerenz specializes in low vision rehabilitation, which provides assistance for patients who have lost vision from an eye or brain condition or injury. This type of visual impairment cannot be corrected by conventional glasses, contact lenses, medicine or surgery. Our goal, working together with our trained occupational therapists and other community resources, is to provide strategies that make it possible for our patients to accomplish the tasks that are important to them, thereby allowing them to live as independently as possible.
