Low Vision Rehabilitation Fulton
If you are having a difficult time reading, recognizing faces, seeing pictures clearly, or even with your personal grooming, you are most likely suffering from a condition known as low vision. Due to damage of your sight, low vision is a condition that prevents a person from accomplishing these daily tasks that most people take for granted. If you have low vision you are not able to have your sight corrected with regular glasses, contact lenses, medicine, or surgery, and require special low vision devices to help you see things more clearly. There really are no ‘fix-all’ devices but there are many popular low vision devices available that do actually help. Our Fulton low vision doctor
stays well-educated on the latest developments in low vision devices and is knowledgeable on the newest portable magnifiers which offer magnified reading on the go. Handheld and electronic, these portable devices are wonderful for tasks such as seeing menus, shopping lists, and reading labels, plus they fit in your purse or pocket. Desktop devices have big, bright screens that offer up to 75x magnification. With optional computer connectivity, there is a great reading table that serves as a visual aid for reading books, while transportable magnification screens and electronic magnifiers work very well for distance, as well as close up viewing.
Our Fulton low vision doctor
will take the time to ask questions to be well aware of your specific needs. We all know and accept that as we get older most of us experience a normal loss of vision but, according to research, the number of people who develop vision problems due to health problems is expected to continue rising. We stay well educated on the causes of low vision, some being birth defect, macular degeneration, cataracts, eye injury, glaucoma, and diabetes. Whatever the cause, most low vision cases are treatable, so please don’t hesitate to make your appointment at Maple Lawn Eye Care Center and see the difference it will make in your improved vision.
