Message from our Doctors

Thank you for your interest in vision rehabilitation and for visiting our web site. Community Services for Vision Rehabilitation (CSVR) helps all with any degree of vision loss. We are highly accessible, responsive and open to all. Our policies are designed to make all of the resources, training, aids and devices available to all who will benefit. We offer individualized, personal care. We see patients of any age, with any type or degree of vision loss, and with or without medical insurance or other coverage. A large inventory of strong glasses, adaptive aids and equipment are stocked at our offices. A thorough initial evaluation of each person allows us to choose the aids best suited for the type and severity of vision loss, preventing the purchase of inappropriate and often costly devices. All can be demonstrated in the office, and many can be used on a trial basis. Our Occupational Therapist and other office personnel can provide additional training and back-up. We welcome any and all questions, comments and feedback.

COMMUNITY SERVICES FOR VISION REHABILITATION
Help for Veterans with vision loss Many veterans of military service do not realize that help for their vision loss may be available through the Veterans Administration. Vision loss may be covered, and much help obtained, even if vision loss is not service connected. Low vision resulting from macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, glaucoma, etc. may be covered by the VA.

Casino Night Fundraiser April 4, 2019

May 2020: Greetings from the Alabama Healthcare Hall of Fame. On behalf of its Board of Directors it is my privilege to announce that Dr. Joe Fontenot has been selected as a member of the Alabama Healthcare Hall of Fame, Class of 2020. Dr. Fontenot was chosen for this distinguished honor because of outstanding contributions and exemplary service to healthcare throughout the State of Alabama.
SPECIAL AWARD
Dr. Catherine Elizabeth (Beth) Coward, 59, of Fairhope, AL, passed away on September 3, 2020, at UAB Hospital. Dr. Coward practiced Ophthalmology and Oculoplastics in Foley beginning in 1994 and was one of the first female surgeons in Baldwin County. Beth was a Board Certified Ophthalmologist and active in the Baldwin County Medical Society. Dr. Coward was known to her colleagues, residents, nurses and patients as a compassionate, caring and 'talkative' physician with a great sense of humor. Dr. Coward served on the board for the Community Services for Vision Rehabilitation where she was a faithful supporter.
Charles Robert Salisbury, born on May 1,1953, in Monroe, Louisiana, and resident of Mobile, Alabama, since 1984, passed away on September 19, 2020. Dr. Salisbury was a graduate of Tulane University School of Medicine completing a residency in Ophthalmology and a fellowship in Vitreous/Retina also at Tulane. Dr. Salisbury moved to Mobile in 1984 to begin a practice in Ophthalmology and within a few years joined the Premier Medical Group. He was humble, a true gentleman and often described as a "prince of a fella." Dr. Salisbury was a long-standing member of board of Community Services for Vision Rehabilitation. He was always supportive and eager to help in any way. CSVR will miss each of these Board Member and will continue to have family members in our thoughts and prayers.
