Low Vision Examinations

The standard examination equipment can not be used for all patients. Some patients have eye conditions that prevent them from seeing normal print and require special examination procedures.  A Low Vision examination requires special equipment and expertise.

The most common cause of low vision is macular degeneration. Macular degeneration is a disease that disrupts the central fine acuity section of the eye. Without quality central vision these patients lose the ability to read small print, drive and recognize faces. For patients with advanced macular degeneration the standard spectacles are not adequate and magnification systems are necessary to help them read and work.
