North Kensington Low Vision
If you have North Kensington low vision, we at Maple Lawn Eye Care Center can help. Unfortunately, the bad news is that there is not a cure for it, but the good news is that with our low vision therapy services, you can still live a full, active, and independent life. Some of the things we can do include working with you to maximize the sight you still have and cultivate habits that are essential to making the best of your existing vision.
Eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy can lead to having North Kensington low vision
in the first place. It is most common form the age of 45 onward, but the reality is that it is something that can happen at any age. Even children can be born with low vision. And while this is a condition that most certainly presents challenges, with our expertise and the advancement of optical technology, they are challenges that you will be able to meet head on.
Some signs that you have North Kensington low vision
are a decreased ability to see detail, loss of peripheral (side-to-side) vision, persistent double vision, problems perceiving colors, and difficulties with climbing or descending steps or navigating along the edges of curbs. If you notice one or more of these indications, you should call us and schedule an eye examination and consultation. This exam is longer than a standard one, and is designed to determine just how low vision is affecting your ability to live your life.
Among the ways that we can combat North Kensington low vision
are with a stronger eyeglass prescription that is specially crafted just for those with low vision, along with various tools that can include telescopes, microscopes, prisms, and video magnification. Some patients will be able to be helped with vitamins. Medicare or insurance will typically cover a low vision exam. The cost of the tools may be up to you, but we will help you to determine which ones will fit into your budget by prioritizing them based on your individual needs. Every person's requirements and challenges will be specific, of course.
