Low Vision Treatment Maryland
Low vision, a term that is used to describe a situation in which your vision cannot be improved by the typical methods of wearing corrective lenses, getting surgery, or taking medication. At Maple Lawn Eye Care Center, we will perform a low vision eye exam to evaluate you so that if you have low vision, it can be properly diagnosed and addressed. It is important to make a determination for low vision so that you can take advantage of what is available to treat and manage it. Our Fulton low vision therapy
combines prescribing special glasses along with helpful tips for lifestyle adjustments that can be very helpful. With the knowledgeable and compassionate care of our low vision expert doctor, you may be able to maintain a great deal of your independence and be able to go about much of your normal routine without having to sacrifice your enjoyment of life.
There are specific symptoms that can alert you to the need for an evaluation. We offer free telephone interviews which will screen you in advance to determine if you're a good candidate for our Fulton low vision therapy
. If you notice a decreased ability to see detail or reduced vision side to side, persistent double vision, problems in climbing or descending stairs, navigating properly along the edges of curbs, or have difficulties distinguishing colors, these are all possible indications of low vision.
It's important to know that low vision in and of itself is not a disease. It is the result of diseases such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, or glaucoma. While it can occur at any age, it is most common in people who are 45 or older. Low vision can be unsettling, but many patients are able to keep enough vision to remain productive. As part of our evaluation, we will discuss your needs and wants, including getting around your home, working, and leisure activities. Our Fulton low vision therapy
includes glasses that are designed specifically to help you see better. Fortunately, we are able to test them on you ahead of time, so you will know prior to ordering them if they are going to be effective for you. Various other aids and devices, such as closed circuit television and other electronic devices are available to assist you in being able to make the most out of your life even with low vision.
