Low Vision Care
Instances of low vision require different approaches to care because the causes of each individual case of low vision may differ. Some people develop low vision over time due to aging eyes or a genetic propensity for a certain condition. Other people suffer sudden trauma to the eyes which can result in a loss of vision or vision impairments. A thorough examination by an eye care professional, which may also include tests to establish a baseline of current vision status, will determine an appropriate treatment plan.
Treatment plans may include prescription glasses, specialized optical systems, therapeutic filters, non-optical options, video magnification, and/or medical rehabilitative therapy to maximize the ability to perform activities of daily living (ADL) such as self-care, dressing, grooming, eating, and bathing.
