    Careers

    What is a Vision Professional?

    Vision professionals can make positive changes in another person’s life. There are a variety of professions in the vision community, working in a variety of environments, and with a range of employment options.

    Vision professionals work with public or private organizations, with children and adults, and with educational, medical and rehabilitation professionals.

    Vision Professionals include:

    Vision Rehabilitation Therapists (VRT), who were formerly known as Rehabilitation Teachers, are specialists in independent living. They teach people with limited vision to create new approaches to familiar routines so they can live on their own terms.

    Orientation & Mobility Specialists (O&M) are travel specialists who teach adults and children how to travel independently, safely, and efficiently.

    Teachers of Students with Visual Impairments (TVI) teach children to explore the world by learning how to interpret what they hear, feel and smell.

    Low Vision Therapists (LVT) use tools and techniques to maximize vision and make everyday activities easier.
