Patients with visual impairments have special needs.  Low vision is a decrease in both eyes in visual acuity or visual field (the area you can see) which cannot be improved with glasses, contact lenses, medication, or surgery.  Essentially this means the vision is not good enough to do the things you want to do.  There are many causes of visual impairments, but the most common are age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy.

The focus of the low vision exam is to evaluate visual function, prescribe devices (such as magnifiers), and help the patient learn to use his or her remaining vision as effectively as possible. 

A low vision examination includes many of the same parts as a regular eye exam.  Additionally, we will ask you about your activities of daily living and visual goals.

There are countless options of low vision devices which can help you meet your visual goals, and we have some demos in our office that you can try for yourself.
