All activities and procedures incorporate lenses, prisms, filters and/or stereoscopic instruments. Patients spend considerable time integrating vision with the other sensory motor systems with special emphasis on the integration of vision with the proprioceptive, kinesthetic, vestibular and auditory/verbal mechanisms.

Low Vision Treatment
Low Vision Treatment Fulton
When standard eyeglasses, contact lenses, medicine or surgery cannot provide sharp sight and the impairment interferes with a person's ability to perform everyday activities, an individual is said to have low vision. Thanks to the developments in the field of vision rehabilitation, we can maximize the use of the remaining vision, improving the quality of life. Each type of vision problem requires a unique therapeutic approach. Treatment plans may include prescription of glasses, custom telescopic or microscopic glasses, therapeutic filters, full-spectrum lighting and/or video magnification. Our Fulton Eye doctor
's goal is to maximize visual function for activities of daily living.
Is it important to see a low vision specialist because of the extreme emotional sensitivity and physical difficulties of this vision problem. Your Maryland low vision eye doctor
understands high-powered optics and magnification plus has working knowledge of the multitude of special glasses, magnifiers, electronic and non-optical low vision devices that can help those with reduced vision. A Silver Spring low vision
eye doctor understands how to work with patients and families who can be extremely upset, fearful, and even depressed. Dr. Ely and Dr. Cohen have compassion and empathy for what the patient and family is going through as well as the knowledge, resources and experience to help them adjust to the difficult situation.
The ability to see clearly during the day without glasses or contact lenses at no surgical risk is now a reality. Orthokeratology is a treatment for myopia which utilizes specialized rigid gas permeable contact lenses. These ultra gas permeable lenses gently reshape the front of your eye as you sleep. In the morning the lenses are removed and clear vision is restored throughout the day. Most often vision improvements come after the first night of wear and can remain stable all day just after two weeks of night wear. Correct your vision while you sleep with safe therapeutic lenses and enjoy great vision all day without the hassle of glasses and daytime contacts.
Orthokeratology is about half the cost of laser vision correction. Perhaps the most important attributes of Orthokeratology are that it is non-invasive and reversible (unlike laser surgery). Also, since Orthokeratology with Silver Spring orthokeratologists
Dr. Ely and Dr. Cohen does not involve surgery, it does not create the side effects of refractive surgeries.
Orthokeratology is also known as also known as Overnight Orthokeratology, Ortho-K, Corneal Refractive Therapy, Overnight Corneal Reshaping or OCR. We are excited to be one of the few Orthokeratology of America Academy members and certified WAVE Orthokeratologists in Maryland
