Expanded Care for Visually Impaired Vets:

The VA is dedicating $40 million over the next three years to set up a nationwide rehabilitation system for visually impaired veterans and active duty personnel, according to a Jan. 25 release. The funding will improve inpatient services, expand outpatient services, and provide care spanning the gamut of vision problems, from 20/70 eyesight to blindness. Each of the VA’s 21 regional networks will offer outpatient-based blind rehabilitation services.
