Welcome - Learn what we're about

Spectrios Institute for Low Vision, formerly Deicke Center for Visual Rehabilitation, is dedicated to helping individuals with low vision lead full, productive lives. Vision loss from macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and other conditions affects millions of Americans each year and can be a devastating diagnosis that impacts more than your ability to see.

Your Head

We educate you about your condition. We help you understand how to best use your sight. We teach you about the changes you can make to improve your ability to see with your current level of vision.

Your Heart

We understand, from the experience of working with thousands of clients, the loss people feel when their vision can no longer be completely corrected. We help relieve the anger, frustration, and hopelessness that often follow a diagnosis of vision loss.

Your Eyes

Our nationally recognized team of professionals has over 100 years of combined experience in diagnosing and treating people with permanent vision loss. We are a teaching and research institution, as well as a provider of low vision products and care. We therefore have access to the latest diagnostic technology and the ability to use the newest prescriptive devices for treating your vision loss.

Providing the full spectrum of care for the head, heart, and eyes is what Spectrios Institute for Low Vision is all about. We can help you find the right vision-aiding devices and the latest technologies to maximize your vision and your ability to live a more independent life. At Spectrios Institute, we provide hope—supported by science and years of experience—to people with vision loss in Chicago and surrounding suburbs.
