When 86 year-old Arnold, who already had severe vision loss in his right eye, experienced a hemorrhage in his left eye, he was unsure whether he’d ever see again. The long-time owner of a financial business and a once avid bridge player, he required a full-time health aide to remain safely at home.
“I was at a point where I could not function,” explained Arnold. “When I came to Lighthouse Guild, I could see almost nothing. But now I have a quality of life again. I can’t believe it.”
Lighthouse Guild’s Vision Rehabilitation services are helping Arnold regain function and maximize his usable vision. He is developing skills and strategies to remain independent and active.
