Dr. Lowery has served as Director of the Oregon Lions Statewide Low Vision Clinic since 1995. He is a faculty member at Pacific University College of Optometry where he teaches courses in pediatrics, low vision and visual function in relation to learning. Dr. Lowery is also Chief of Pediatrics for Pacific University Optometry Clinics and is involved in research and continuing education regarding pediatric visual impairments and developmental low vision care.
The purpose of the Statewide Low Vision clinic is to provide low vision assessments that are directed toward a child’s educational and environmental needs. The clinic works in cooperation with the state Regional Programs in providing services to children age birth through twenty-one years with the goal to help gain a better understanding of child’s vision and to make recommendations that will assist him or her in the educational setting. We are fortunate to have Dr. Lowery bring his expertise and insights each year to our Region, funded by the Oregon Lions Club.
The Oregon Lions Statewide Low Vision Clinic is a program of the Oregon Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation. Their support allows the clinic to provide services at no cost to individuals being served through local Regional Vision Programs. Low vision aids (magnifiers, telescopes) may also be provided free of charge either directly through the clinic or through the Regional Programs.
