Low Vision Aids

Low vision aids are a useful help to ophthalmic treatments to improve vision for patients with retinal disease. After the onset of retinal disease, it is still useful to have your glasses checked by the optician as the refraction of the eye can change. As the retina becomes damaged good lighting can help vision, particularly near vision. I recommend a Halogen light, which can be focused on the page. These can be either free standing or table based.

Low visual aids should always be prescribed by an experienced ophthalmic optician who will measure your visual performance with each type of visual aid used.
