Dr. Rinkov helps low vision patient to see again with Iris Vision

Low vision patient able to see again with the help of Iris Vision

This patient suffers from dry macular degeneration and is unable to read, watch television or see her computer clearly. Dr. Rinkov fit her with a full diameter telescope for television with a Rx cap to place over her right eye for reading the computer. She was also fit with E scoop lenses with a yellow tint to reduce glare and to replace her former everyday glasses. These are custom lenses with a special curvature and thickness that enlarges objects slightly.

In addition, she was fit with bioptics. These are like having binoculars on the top of her prescription lens so she can see signs, cars and people much clearer and sooner.

E-scoop Glasses

This patient was struggling with macular degeneration. As a solution, Dr. Rinkov created lenses that use a prism to move the image the patient sees to a less degenerative part of the eye, have a tint to decrease glare and provide magnification of what is being seen.

Low Vision Macular Degeneration Patient

Because of her macular degeneration, Carol had a hard time reading her favorite books, the newspaper, and even her mail. Thanks to her new glasses, she can see much better and is already catching up on her reading list!

One Lens, Full Diameter Telescope

Dr. Rinkov is able to provide extremely customized solutions for his patients. This patient only needed a customized lens for one eye. In an effort to reduce cost for his patient and improve her vision, he created only a lens for that eye. These glasses allow here to read and watch TV again.

Full-Diameter Telescope Allows Patient to See Again

Before visiting Dr. Rinkov, the patient was diagnosed with macular degeneration in both eyes. The patient also had loss of vision in right eye and was unable to see well with his left eye at distance and near. To treat these conditions, Dr. Rinkov fit the patient with a full-diameter telescope for distance tasks with a removable magnification cap placed over the telescope for reading.
