Are you having trouble seeing well enough to perform your everyday tasks? If so, you probably have been diagnosed with low vision. Patients with low vision are often able to be helped with low vision therapy. Low vision therapy is an individualized treatment for patients with low vision. Almost every situation is different as each person has their own individual vision problems, and their own vision needs. When you need low vision treatment in North Kensington you will want to come to our vision practice, Maple Lawn Eye Care Center, for help.
At our vision practice we have three expert and highly trained optometrists. Our optometrists are Dr. Jacalyn R. Ely, Dr. Sanford R. Cohen, and Dr. Fawziya Mirza. A patient has low vision when they have vision that falls within a specific low range, but the patient is not blind. In fact, the patient still has some vision which can be maximized to help them perform daily tasks. However, when a patient has low vision they can no longer be helped with contact lenses, prescription eyeglasses or with medicine or surgery. When you come in to see our low vision specialist for low vision treatment in North Kensington, you will be able to benefit from our specialist’s knowledge about high-powered optics and magnification. Our optometrist will also have a working knowledge of a wide range of special glasses, magnifiers, and electronic and other low-vision devices that can help you benefit from your reduced vision.
When a patient has low vision, it is understandable that they can be depressed or even fearful. Our optometrists are experienced in working with low vision patients and are very understanding, patient and helpful through the entire process. Patients will be able to benefit from our optometrists’ knowledge and resources which will help them learn how to be productive even in their difficult vision situations. Low vision can be caused by a variety of different eye conditions including macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; retinal detachment; cataracts; glaucoma; and many other vision problems. During a low vision exam our optometrist will determine how the low vision is affecting your life. The optometrist will then determine the best form and level of magnification that is needed by the patient to help them perform desired tasks. An individual treatment plan will be developed for each low vision patient. When you need low vision treatment in North Kensington make an appointment to come in and see our low vision specialist at our practice, Maple Lawn Eye Care Center.
