What Is Low Vision?

Low vision is a loss of sight that cannot be corrected with ordinary eyeglasses, contact lenses, medicine, or surgery. Anyone whose loss of vision interferes with their ability to do normal, everyday tasks has the potential to benefit from optometric low vision rehabilitation services.

Talk to our team today. We can help you find a solution to improve your visual comfort.

Who Is a Good Candidate for These Services?

Many eye diseases and conditions can significantly reduce sight. A significant number of our patients suffer from:

These diseases often impact reading, computer work, driving, watching television, and personal hygiene. Our program addresses those needs, but we also recognize that each patient is different—with their own specific hobbies and interests. We tailor our approach to each patient so that personal goals are addressed.

What To Expect

Optometric low vision rehabilitation teaches you how to successfully utilize the vision you have left. Our experience has taught us that this process usually takes more than one doctor’s visit and often involves the patient needing more than just a new pair of eyeglasses. 

It is natural for patients to assume that a stronger pair of glasses will alleviate their problem, but in advanced cases of eye disease, stronger eyeglasses do not work. In fact, they can sometimes make visual symptoms worse. 

Prescription magnifiers, high-powered reading glasses, telescopes, closed-circuit televisions, and other devices are necessary in these cases. We are excited to teach you how to utilize this technology.

We want you to leave our program with a renewed enthusiasm for life, able to enjoy some of the things that came naturally to you before your vision loss. Simply put, your goals become our goals. You can expect us to passionately pursue your interests together.

Your First Visit

Your initial visit to our Optometric Low Vision Rehabilitation Center will consist of a thorough ocular health evaluation by one of our low-vision doctors. It usually takes about 2 hours. This will allow us to completely understand the nature and complexity of your problem.

We will explain your disease in detail and coordinate a personalized plan based on your specific goals and interests. In the following visits, you will work with our team to execute the plan. Each of these visits lasts an hour and insurance typically covers the cost of each office visit.

Vision Therapy

Vision therapy is an effective, non-surgical, doctor-supervised treatment that retrains the brain and eyes to work together more efficiently. Rather than compensate for vision problems, vision therapy aims to treat and correct the visual system itself. Discover how we can help you or your child overcome vision problems and build a greater sense of confidence.
