Understanding Low Vision

At ProEye Associates, our Vernon eye doctors are committed to providing you with the comprehensive eye and vision care services you need throughout every stage of life. One of the more common services we provide is that of thorough eye and vision exams, which we utilize not only to check for changes in your corrective vision prescription, but to be on the lookout for potential signs of eye conditions. Low vision is just one example of common eye conditions that is sometimes spotted and diagnosed during an eye exam.

Low vision refers to a vision impairment that, unfortunately, isn't possible to correct with traditional treatments like glasses and contact lenses. Specifically, this eye condition affects a person's ability to distinguish details, contrasts, objects, and/or even colors. Often times, low vision has an underlying cause, such as glaucoma, a brain injury, or macular degeneration.

There are a number of potential red flags that could indicate low vision, but an eye exam will be needed to confirm a diagnosis. Some of the more common symptoms of low vision include trouble reading, frequently tripping or falling, and difficulty recognizing familiar faces. If you suffer from any of these symptoms, please schedule an appointment with our eye doctors.

Treatment Options for Low Vision

While low vision cannot be corrected with glasses or contacts, there are possible treatment options that can help improve your ability to see. For example, there are numerous low vision devices that can be prescribed to you by a skilled and experienced eye doctor. In our office, we specialize in the diagnosis of low vision and will do everything we can to help you improve your quality of life with this eye condition.
