Greetings from our team at Ensight
Are you or someone you love experiencing vision loss and living in Colorado? Whether it’s from Macular Degeneration (AMD), Stargardts, Glaucoma, Diabetic eye disease, RP, stroke, head injury, or a number of other circumstances Ensight Skills Center for Low Vision Rehabilitation in Colorado is here to help you and your family.
The Ensight Skills Center is a 501-C3 not-for-profit organization that provides visual rehabilitation. We are the only fully comprehensive Low Vision services in Colorado. The low vision community depends on Ensight programs to help them regain and preserve independence and quality of life.
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.
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.
A low vision evaluation includes:
Determination of the patient’s goals
Complete visual function evaluation
Ocular health assessment
Low vision device assessment and training
An occupational therapy evaluation to address activities of daily living
Referrals to state agencies when eligible
Referrals to orientation and mobility specialists when necessary
To make an appointment at one of our locations in Fort Collins please call (970) 407-9999, Greeley please call (970) 353-9417, and to schedule at either Lafayette, Lakewood, Littleton, or Parker please call (303)757-4500.
The initial evaluation may take up to two hours. Patients may need more than one visit to achieve their personal vision rehabilitation goals and maximize visual recovery. Home visits by the occupational therapist are available. Patients may also be prescribed visual exercises.
Ensight is happy to report that we have received a five year accreditation from the National Accreditation Council for Blind and Low Vision Services. Thank you to our amazing staff for all of their hard work in getting through the accreditation process.
In other news, Ensight is also happy to report that thanks to the support from all of the Colorado Lions Clubs we have received a SightFirst grant from Lions Club International Foundation. With the funds from this grant Ensight will be working hard to reach out to more individuals than ever before with our Onsite Low Vision Assessments. This includes obtaining and outfitting a mobile unit. This is so huge! We will keep you updated as things advance. For now, please contact Ensight to find out about scheduling an Onsite Assessment at a community space or senior community.
