An experienced optometrist will test your vision and evaluate your visual needs. When appropriate, the most helpful optical aids will be prescribed for you. Loaners will be made available to you for 2 to 3 weeks. A professional is also available for providing training to use the prescribed aids. The latest information on medical developments and beneficial nutrition may be discussed for your best interests.
Glare can be hindering and even intolerable to individuals with low vision. Specially designed polarized lenses with UV & AB protection reduce glare and provide greater visual comfort and performance. The glare control shields selected for evaluation and display in our Low Vision Clinic are both effective and stylish.
Lighting influences visual comfort and performance. For people who have reduced vision, appropriate lighting is essential for accomplishing almost every task, especially when using magnifiers. Proper illumination can be achieved by using the right type of illuminated magnifiers, lamps, or by the arrangement of light sources.
