Low Vision Treatments in Northeast Pennsylvania

Low vision is the term used by eye care professionals to describe partial sight, or sight that isn’t fully correctable with surgery, prescription drugs, contact lenses or glasses. Low vision can range from moderate vision impairment, such as tunnel vision or blind spots, to “legal blindness” or almost total blindness.

Low vision can have a variety of causes, including eye injury or disease. It can also be heredity.

Children as well as adults can be visually impaired, but low vision is generally a problem that affects people as they age. Many people who suffer from low vision become frustrated, unable to perform their jobs and becoming increasingly dependent on friends and relatives.

What Our Customers
Are Saying
Hugo H

Great place. Clean and professional office. Dr. Jordan is a fantastic doctor. I got cataract surgery on both eyes and it changed my life 100%. Great staff. Highly recommend this practice.

J.B. Wright

I suffered from a corneal abrasion suddenly while I was in town for business. The group was very responsive in getting back to me and squeezing me in on the same day. They recently incorporated a new computer system and I can see the benefits to that implementation. It made the check-in process very easy and quick. Dr. Fox was attentive and compassionate to my problem. She prescribed my prescription and laid out a clear path for me to take as soon as I flew home. Thank you to the team!

Wilma Mitchell

I had cataract surgery and it went fantastic! All the staff were very professional and helpful. Dr Jordan made me feel very comfortable. I can see so much better. I am even driving at nite, which was a big issue. Highly recommend them!

Michele Keating

Great job by intake person for Dr William Jordan today. I was not able to get her name I just had surgery on my knee a few days prior to the visit and was in a great amount of discomfort She was kind and accommodating to me in every way and was very patient with me and helpful

Willie Schumacher

Northeast eye is fantastic. I had 2 cataracts removed and new lens put in. Everyone was polite, efficient, and helpful. Dr Frattali is great. Very detailed, very reassuring and even quietly sang while operating on my eyes. No discomfort. I felt well cared for and informed the entire time. Would highly recommend them. I left there not having to wear glasses for now. I look forward to their follow up.

Harold Cameron

I always receive outstanding eye care when I go to the Northeastern Eye Institute in Scranton. The staff are pleasant and helpful. Dr. Arthur Jordan Jr. always provides the highest quality of eye care for me. I am very pleased with NE Eye and will continue to go there for my vision needs.

Thomas Glasspool

They did a great job with my Lasik procedure. They were polite and professional and kept me informed during the whole process. I was able to schedule my Lasik the same week I had my evaluation.

Art Jordan

Northeastern Eye Institute is one of the best eye care practices in the area, every time I go there the staff is friendly, considerate and helpful. When I'm with my doctor he listens to my concerns, and explains to me, so I can understand, the issues I was having with my eyes. Unlike other doctors who have rushed through my visit as if I were on a assembly line. I would highly recommend Northeastern Eye to anyone who is looking for an eye doctor.

Barbara Holder

Had an appointment last week with Dr.Walsh.. she was awesome ..All the office staff was masked and they had hand sanitizer around the office.when I paid with my credit card they even sanitized it before giving it back to me.. the lady that helped me pick out my frames was very friendly and knowledgeable about the frames that would look nice on me .the whole process from checking in and picking frames out to sitting down to place my order took under 90 minutes. Will definitely recommend them to people

Our Low Vision Treatments Doctors

Northeastern Eye Institute Offers Low Vision Assistance

Northeastern Eye Institute has assembled a team of leading low vision specialists to help patients improve their sight. Our eye specialists can train patients to use modern technology including magnifiers, telescopes and video magnifiers, to improve their vision. Our eye specialists can also recommend practical ways to compensate for low vision without optical technology, like choosing large-face printed material, books on audio tapes rather than paper, special light fixtures to aid low vision plus signature guides with advice on how to manage the problem.

If you or someone you know exhibits symptoms of hazy or blurred vision, light sensitivity, loss of peripheral vision, night blindness, a need for more light than before – including color confusion, floaters or difficulty reading – an eye specialist at Northeastern Eye Institute could help. Low vision need not be an inevitable part of aging. Patients might even suffer from an eye condition they are unaware of, which could be easily treated.
