Our practice offers low vision rehabilitation services to treat those who are afflicted with sight-threatening diseases or injuries.
When vision is reduced to the point where regular eyeglasses are unable to adequately allow someone to see comfortably then we are able to prescribe low vision devices or specialty engineered lenses to improve vision.
- Telescopic glasses
- Microscopic glasses
- High-power distortion-free magnifiers
- Closed-circuit televisions
- And many other electronic devices may be used to maximize a person’s residual vision.
Along with the devices comes rehabilitation training to effectively use these devices and to learn to use the healthy part of your eye to see better. Some of the site threatening diseases that lead to low vision are

- Diabetic retinopathy
- Corneal dystrophy
