Low Vision For The Partially Sighted
What is low vision?
"Low vision" describes significant visual impairment that can't be corrected fully with glasses, contact lenses, medication or eye surgery. It includes:

Loss of best-corrected visual acuity(BVCA) to worse than 20/70 in the better eye or significant visual field loss, such as Tunnel Vision (lack of vision in the periphery) and blind spots.

Legal blindness, In North America is defined as: 20/200 or less central visual acuity in the better eye with best possible correction, or a visual field of 20º or less.
Eye diseases are a common cause of low vision:
• Hazy, blurry vision can result from Cataracts.
• Blurred or partially obscured central vision is typical of Macular Degeneration.
• Diabetic Retinopathy causes blind spots, blurriness and visual distortions.
• Poor peripheral vision is a hallmark of Glaucoma.
• Retinitis Pigmentosa reduces peripheral vision and the ability to see in the dark.
• Light sensitivity and loss of contrast are other symptoms of these and other diseases.
• Heredity and Eye Injuries can also result in Low Vision

What To Do About Low Vision:
If you have a vision impairment that interferes with your ability to perform everyday activities and enjoy life, your first step is to see one of our eye care professionals for a complete eye exam. Poor vision that cannot be corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses could be the first sign of a serious eye disease such as Age-Related Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma or Retinitis Pigmentosa. Or it could mean you are developing a Cataract that needs removal. Whatever the case, it's wise to take action before further vision loss occurs. If we finds that you have vision loss that cannot be corrected adequately with standard eye wear, medical treatment or surgery, we will help you take the next steps toward coping with your new situation.

We completed a post-doctoral specialty in low vision. We focus our attention to thoroughly evaluate the degree and type of vision loss you have, prescribe appropriate low vision aids such as lighted handheld magnifiers, digital desktop magnifiers and bioptic telescopes, and help you learn how to use them. Newer options include handheld digital magnifiers for shopping or eating out, as well as software that simplifies computer use with magnification and text-to-speech features.

We can also recommend non-optical adaptive devices, such as large-face printed material, audio recordings, special light fixtures and signature guides for signing checks and documents. Special eye wear with tinted UV filters can help with light sensitivity and heighten contrast.
