We specialize in providing expert care to meet all of your family’s vision needs. We work to provide the best vision care for all of our patients, while providing a stress-free atmosphere. We specialize in the treatment for many vision problems, including low vision treatment in Maryland.
An individual has low vision when standard lenses, medicines or surgery cannot provide sharp vision; this vision impairment interferes with the person’s ability to live their everyday lives. So, low vision is not a specific disease, nor is it a condition resulting from one particular cause. It is simply a patient’s inability to see well enough to function so he or she can go about and live his or her everyday life. As low vision eye doctors, Drs. Ely and Cohen understand the complex workings of the many types of special lenses and glasses, and low vision devices. They also have a clear view of how low vision can affect an individual and their family, and strive to treat their patients and families with the utmost care and respect. Low vision treatment in Maryland calls not only for knowledge of optometric solutions, but also for the desire to work with people who may be experiencing emotional distress due to their challenging vision situation.
Some of the more common causes of low vision are: macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy, retinitis pigmentosa; retinal detachment; cataracts; glaucoma; or traumatic brain injury. In order to treat low vision, our doctor must first understand the patient’s vision goals. Then the doctor must determine the best level of magnification needed so they can obtain these goals. Treatment can include several devices with varying levels of magnification. Our goal is to maximize the useable vision for daily activities. Usually one or more pair of glasses is necessary to handle several different tasks. There are some situations when vitamins help. If you need low vision treatment in Maryland, with an effective solution, contact our doctors at Maple Lawn Eye Care Center. They will be happy to meet with you to help determine the best solutions for all of your low vision problems.
