Low vision is a term used to describe vision impairment that we cannot correct by means of standard prescription glasses, contact lenses, surgery or medications. This can be the result of trauma or disease and can affect anyone at any age. Our goal with these services is to make your life easier by enhancing the vision that you do have.
As everyone is different and can be affected by disease in different ways, the approach for treatment will vary. Treatment can include high-powered prescription glasses, magnifiers and telescope systems, tinted lenses, and video magnifiers as well. After a comprehensive eye exam, we can perform a separate, low vision exam, to determine what aids would be best for you.
Upon dispensing of these low vision aids, we have a helpful team member who will give instructions and demonstrate the use of these new aids.
