Our Client Qualifications

The Center for Vision Loss uses eligibility guidelines established by the Pennsylvania Bureau of Blindness and Visual Services (BBVS) and has no financial qualifications for clients. A person is eligible if he or she is documented by a physician in the past year to have one or more of the following:

  • A visual acuity of 20/70 or worse in their better eye with best correction
  • A visual field of 20 degrees or worse
  • A visual function level that is equivalent of an acuity of 20/70 or worse

Potential clients are asked to provide permission to obtain examination results from their doctors or can be provided an examination by our Low Vision Care Center optometrist.
