Low Vision is the professional term for partial sight which may occur as a result of birth defects, injury, a complication resulting from disease of the retina – or simply the ageing process. In most cases there may not be a cure but you can be helped!
Whatever the causes, the condition makes the tasks of everyday living such as shopping cooking or just watching TV, very difficult to cope with, even with the best possible spectacle or contact lens correction, medicine or surgery.
But don’t give up. In most cases we can help you to utilize the eyesight you do have so that everyday living becomes a great deal easier and not as challenging as it is now!
Your problem may be simply a loss of sharpness, or it may be light sensitivity, distorted vision or a loss in the field of vision. Whatever the problem may be, we provide Low Vision Services which will not cure the problem but are designed specifically to enhance the vision ability you are left with to its fullest potential.
The Low Vision testing and evaluation is done at our Hyde Park centre where our professionals will prescribe the optical or non-optical aids necessary to boost your vision capabilities – and thereafter they will provide you with proper training in the use of those vital aids.
We have an extensive range of these modern, high-tech aids such as magnifying eyeglasses, bioptic telescopes for driving, electronic visual aids, glare control and enhancing filters and, of course, a comprehensive range of hand-held magnifiers – all designed to improve the quality of your daily living. An important part of our service is that we will train you in their proper use which is also critical if we are to maximize the impaired vision you do have.
And that is our objective, to help you to see better! Contact us for the chance at an improved quality of life.
