Receive a low vision evaluation with Dr. Ely and Dr. Cohen at Fulton Eyecare Center! Some patients simply cannot be helped with standard eyeglasses, contact lenses, or medical eye treatment, which is when a low vision specialist like Dr. Ely can step in to help. Our Silver Spring Low Vision Specialists
are knowledgeable about low vision aids like telescopes, microscopic reading glasses, magnifying aides, electronic aides, high-powered optics, and lighting devices that can assist our partially sighted or legally blind patients.
Olney Low Vision Eye Doctor
A variety of common eye diseases can cause low vision or other visual impairments. Over 1.6 million elderly Americans are diagnosed with macular degeneration, which can cause a blind spot in the central area of vision. Patients with diabetic retinopathy, retinitis pigmentosa, retinopathy of prematurity, retinal detachment, cataracts, glaucoma or traumatic brain injury, are all at risk for vision loss. If you live in Silver Spring, Rockville, Garret Park, Kensington, Olney, Sandy Spring, Ashton, Derwood, or Bethesda, stop by our Silver Spring optometric office to receive a low vision evaluation today. A low vision examination is quite different from a rudimentary eye examination and will require you to spend more time with our eye doctors to discuss how reduced vision is affecting your daily life.
Thanks to the developments in the field of vision rehabilitation, our Silver Spring eye doctors and low vision experts 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. At Fulton Eyecare Center, our goal is to maximize visual function for activities of daily living. Trust Dr. Ely and Dr. Cohen with your low vision evaluation today!
