Low Vision Treatments for Eye Disease and Injury

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.

To discuss low vision problems and treatment options, schedule a consultation by calling toll-free855-204-6888 or (570) 342-3145 or emailing us to schedule an appointment. Click here to find a Northeastern Eye Institute Location near you.

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.
