The Visual Impairment Services Team (VIST) Coordinators are case managers who have responsibility for the coordination of services for severely disabled visually impaired Veterans and Active Duty Servicemembers.

VIST coordinator duties include providing and/or arranging the provision of appropriate treatment in order to enhance functioning such as making referrals to Blind Rehabilitation Centers, Blind Rehabilitation Outpatient Services, VICTORS, VISOR, and low vision clinics. Other VIST coordinator duties include identifying newly identified individuals who have severely disabling visual impairment, providing counseling, problem resolution, arranging a review of benefits and needed services, and conducting educational and outreach programs relating to VIST and blindness.

People who lose sight often have problems with different functions of daily life. They may rely on others to help with reading, travel, preparing meals, and many other tasks. Our vision and blind rehabilitation services help people regain their independence. This leads to a better quality of life for the Veterans we serve and their families.
