Low Vision Care

Our staff has been specially trained to assist you in finding the appropriate solutions for your unique visual needs.

What is low vision?

Low vision is a partial loss of sight. It exists when vision cannot be adequately corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, medications or surgery. While it is often a loss of visual acuity or sharpness, it may also be a loss of side vision or extreme difficulty with light or glare. If you suffer from low vision we can help you achieve your maximum vision potential.
