Vision Care Center

 

Visual service helps people with good or relatively good visual acuity but with various visual complains to enhance the quality or comfortableness of their visual ability.  

The Visual Rehabilitation Service provides methods or apparatus to enhance the quality of life for those people whose eyesight cannot be improved through medical or surgical treatments. The Service offers these patients the opportunity to make the best possible use of their remaining vision through a comprehensive rehabilitative process.

Vision Rehabilitation Services

Traditionally, the visually impaired have often been considered as blind, despite the fact that over 90% retain some residual sight capacity. Many visually impaired who could have learned to use their sight are instead taught blind techniques.

In 2009 Sekwa formed a cooperation with the Beijing Disabled Person Federation for the development of a Visual Rehabilitation Program. The initiative has received technical support from the Norwegian Company Provista Innovation  (www.provista.no) and financial support from Innovation Norway.  The main aim is to develop a research and development framework for service provision in vision rehabilitation. This initiative came out of the understanding that unlike rehabilitation services for hearing impaired China was totally lacking in organized comprehensive high quality rehabilitation service for the visually impaired.

ProVista Innovation (AS) of Norway in close cooperation with Sekwa has developed a concept for Low Vision Clinics that can provide the visually impaired with technologies and aids that enable those with greatly reduced vision to function at work and in daily life. The aim of the project is to develop a business model based on a start-up kit (the Low Vision Box) for specialists with both physical and digital products and services to help start and run a sight clinic.  The idea is based on observed user needs, and in this Design Pilot project users will become more involved in the development process.
