What is Low Vision?


"Low vision" is impaired vision that cannot be fully restored by surgery, medical treatments, or conventional eyeglasses or contact lenses. Low vision is not blindness. You are not alone; over 15 million Americans have some form of visual impairment. We are here to help. You can do something about low vision.
 

Our goal is to help you make the most of the eyesight you have so you can do more of the things you need and want to do — whether it's reading a book, writing a letter, shopping, watching television or doing crafts.


When an individual's eyesight can not be corrected to better than 20/200 with lenses, then he/she is diagnosed as having low vision. Macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and genetic diseases are just some of the causes of this diminished vision.

Unfortunately many people are told that nothing can be done. While there may not be a cure, we can design and prescribe low vision systems for many of these individuals. Bioptic telescopes and microscopes are mounted in a pair of glasses to allow many of them to resume reading, cooking, hobbies, playing cards and in some cases driving – greatly improving their lifestyles.
