Partners for Pediatric Vision offers free phone, video and telehealth services to families who have questions about how to help their child with visual impairment.  In addition, we are available to sit in on pediatric vision exams to help families understand how their child is using functional vision.  Families are given information, resources and guidance about their child's visual impairment and strategies for encouraging vision skills as well as adapting to a visual impairment.  We have been providing vision education and support to hundreds of families for over twenty years.
