Pediatric Low Vision Services
Dr. Gregory Waldorf offers specialized low vision exams for children from birth to seventeen years old in our low vision clinic. Using a variety of techniques, Dr. Waldorf is able to determine what a child can and cannot see and make recommendations to families and teachers about the best ways to help the child maximize their remaining vision. The cost of these services is covered by private and public health insurance.
Children age birth to three years old are generally referred to this service through their early intervention case coordinator. Children over the age of three are generally referred to the program through their caseworker at Rhode Island State Services for the Blind.
