Through special testing techniques, CLB’s Doctor of Optometry determines which devices can best improve or assist low vision. Special lenses, prisms, magnifiers, light filters and other technologically enhanced devices may be prescribed to augment and improve vision impairments.
A low vision evaluation begins with an evaluation of your vision history, your limitations and your goals. The next step is to evaluate visual acuity, visual fields and ocular health. Once these steps are complete, the patient explores possible adaptive aids. These aids include high-powered glasses, magnifiers, telescopic devices, special lighting or glare filters and electronic devices.
