Low vision describes vision loss. Even if patients wear eyeglasses or contacts, they may still have trouble with their vision. At times medications and surgery are not able to help this vision loss, though we will do everything we can to ensure that the condition does not progress into blindness. Some diseases that cause low vision include macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, inherited retinal degenerative diseases, glaucoma and optic nerve atrophy.
There is no treatment for low vision. Instead, patients are placed into therapy to help them use their current level of sight to continue to do their daily tasks.
Our entire staff is dedicated to ensuring that all of our patients see as clearly as possible. We continue to learn about the latest advances in vision correction to ensure that your vision is the best that it can be.
If you have any questions about correcting your vision or would like to have your eyes checked, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (858) 381-4060.
