Our low vision optometrists help people with impaired sight use their remaining sight more effectively. Our optometrists can prescribe customized low vision devices or demonstrate assistive technology that can help enhance and better utilize your vision.
Conditions and Symptoms
We treat a variety of eye conditions including Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy, Cataracts, Glaucoma, Optic Nerve Atrophy, Retinal Detachment, and vision loss due to stroke.
Low Vision Aids
With proper low vision devices and training, many individuals with vision impairment are able to continue working, cooking, and in some cases, they may even continue driving.
Low Vision Driving Evaluation
This evaluation provides individuals with the necessary testing the DMV requires including the completion of the 962 (or DL-62) form. Additionally, the prospective driver will learn about his/her visual strengths and weaknesses. The ultimate goal of the evaluation is to promote road safety while allowing those eligible the opportunity to obtain driving privileges.
The special testing assesses several components:
Acuity (clarity of vision)
Peripheral Vision (Field of Vision)
Regularity of Eye movements
The Children’s Program is devoted exclusively to helping children with unique vision problems. Our pediatric optometrists provide Functional Vision Assessments to determine the child’s hand-eye coordination, visual processing skills, eye movement skills and depth perception.
The Center is experienced in designing custom prescription glasses to fit each child’s needs. We are skilled at providing assistive technology and adaptive learning techniques specifically suited to the classroom.
Our Children’s Program works in collaboration with the child’s ophthalmologist, pediatrician, teacher, family, and other professionals to help each child achieve his or her potential in the home, classroom, and community.
