Once you have received a comprehensive eye exam, your doctor may inform you a corrective prescription alone will not be enough to provide optimal eyesight. In this case, you may be considered for a low vision evaluation to determine if any additional devices would further improve your vision. We offer the most advanced devices to enhance and improve sight beyond what may be achieved by wearing glasses or contact lenses alone. Examples of some low vision devices we offer are handheld and stand magnifiers, telescopes and reverse telescopes, prism half-eye glasses, CCTV’s, and much more. We provide training and education on these devices with the goal of increasing overall function and improving quality of life.
Conditions like Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, and Cataracts can cause visual problems ordinary glasses or contact lenses cannot correct. Help is available. Following a complete eye examination and treatment of any underlying disease or condition causing the decrease in vision, a thorough Low Vision Evaluation can be conducted. During this examination, close attention is given to the effects of decreased vision on the patient’s lifestyle and a plan is designed to best meet your needs and goals. We believe in a team approach and work closely with all your doctors to help you achieve greater independence.
