The mission of Ensight Skills Center is to provide individuals with low vision the opportunity to enhance their life skills, independence, and self confidence in a safe environment through training and adaptive technology.
“I wish I had known about Ensight sooner. The services my dad received from Ensight made a great deal of difference in his attitude and ability to stay active and independent. He is reading again and working on his hobbies! Thank you Ensight.”
Ensight Skills Center serves anyone having difficulty with activities of daily living related to vision loss. Vision loss has many causes. Some of the most common causes of vision loss are degenerative eye diseases like macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy. In most cases, there are no medical treatments that will bring vision back. This is when visual rehabilitation services can help optimize the use of remaining vision through training and adaptive aids. The journey to independence starts with a low vision evaluation. Ensight has offices in Larimer County (Fort Collins), Weld County (Greeley), Boulder County (Lafayette), Denver County, Douglas County (Parker), Jefferson County (Lakewood), and Arapahoe County (Littleton).
“My three angels! After I was diagnosed with Macular Degeneration I got very depressed. Ensight’s OT, doctor, and support staff showed me that I could be independent. I just needed to adapt. I don’t even want to think about where I would be today with out Ensight.”
