Preserve Your Vision For Longer

What Does "Low Vision" Mean?

Low vision refers to vision loss that can’t be corrected with standard glasses, contact lenses or surgery. However, it isn't considered blindness as limited eyesight remains. Symptoms typically include blind spots, poor night vision and blurred vision. Low vision is commonly caused by age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetes.

Fortunately, people with low vision can continue living full and meaningful lives with the help of low vision aids and devices.

Friendly staff, clean (and beautiful) facilities, and informative! The staff let me know the cost of... everything at the desk when I asked, and I was not surprised with a different bill at the end of my visit. Dr. Mimi is an awesome doctor and super nice!

Dr. Ziskrout and the tech explained everything very well. When with Dr. Ziskrout, he made me feel ve... ry welcomed, relaxed, and made sure to answer any questions I had. The tech made sure I knew what each test was for and what to expect. She also made sure I knew what the dilation and/or pictures were for that I opted out of. Once informed, I chose to do the pictures which my insurance partially paid, my portion didn't cost much. I was also pleased that my contact order was fast; ordered on Tuesday and came in on Saturday. That is also another plus, they are opened on Saturday.

What conditions can cause low vision?

Low vision can be caused by a number of eye conditions and diseases, including age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetes, eye cancer, albinism, and genetic eye disorders. Eye injuries and traumatic brain injuries can also result in vision loss. If you or a loved one has low vision, contact our practice to learn how we can help you carry out your daily tasks more effectively.

How can one obtain a low vision aid or device?

The process begins with a comprehensive low vision eye exam by our low vision team. Once we’ve determined your degree and type of vision loss, we’ll ask you about your lifestyle and suggest the aids or devices that can help you most. Then, we’ll show you exactly how to use your new aids independently and answer any of your questions.
