What Is Low Vision?

Living With Low Vision

Low Vision Glasses

Low vision is significant vision impairment that usually results from serious eye disease or an injury.

The vision loss, which is characterized by either reduced visual acuity (to 20/70 or worse) or reduced field of view, can’t be fully corrected.

Low vision can affect both children and adults. It is more common in the elderly, who are at greater risk of eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts, which are some of the most common causes of the condition. Injury and heredity may also cause low vision.

With significant vision loss it can become challenging to complete common daily tasks including reading, writing, cooking, watching tv, or even recognizing people.

When low vision is diagnosed it can come as a shock. Initially, it is an adjustment to learn how to function with impaired vision but the good news is there are numerous resources and products available to assist.

Because low vision often impacts one’s independence, ability to work, or resume normal life, many patients feel isolated and depressed.

Ever look through a pair of field glasses or binoculars? Things look bigger and closer, and easier to see. Dr Rinkov and members of the International Academy of Low Vision Specialists (IALVS) are using miniaturized telescopes mounted on glasses to help people who have lost vision from:

  • Macular Degeneration
  • Retinitis Pigmentosa
  • Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Glaucoma

  • Cataracts
  • Stroke
  • Albinism
  • Stargardt, Best Disease, & Juvenile Retinoschisis

Enjoy Life With Low Vision Aids

Technology has progressed rapidly allowing those who previously were left with little option for a normal life, the chance for a happy and independent life with low vision. The treatment options are abundant such as bioptics, full diameter telescopes, prismatic reading glasses, HD portable readers, tints, and more for low vision eye diseases suchs as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, which are already considered very mainstream.

While not every solution is fit for everybody, we will be happy to help you navigate the many options for low vision aids. Additionally for day to day there are amazing computer programs for easier computer usage, digital magnifiers, and much more.
