Low Vision Optometry Clinic

The LightHouse, in partnership with the UC Berkeley School of Optometry, offers low vision examinations every week at our San Francisco office. This service includes an hour-and-a-half-long low vision evaluation by a board-certified low vision optometrist and a follow-up visit with a LightHouse Rehabilitation Training Specialist.

In 2016, we opened a new headquarters at 1155 Market Street which features multiple state-of-the-art exam rooms and greater teaching capacity for optometric students.  In addition, the LightHouse now hosts adjacent demonstration rooms where high-tech optical and electronic devices can be tested and compared.

If you are unsure whether you are a candidate for a low vision exam, speak with your primary eye care professional or give us a call. Our staff will be happy to guide you through the process.

For more information or to schedule an exam, contact the UC Berkeley Optometry School at 510-642-5726, or email the LightHouse’s Debbie Bacon at dbacon@LightHouse-sf.org.
