What Does "Low Vision" Mean?

Low vision refers to vision loss that can’t be corrected with standard glasses, contact lenses or surgery. However, it isn't considered blindness as limited eyesight remains. Symptoms typically include blind spots, poor night vision and blurred vision. Low vision is commonly caused by age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetes.

Fortunately, people with low vision can continue living full and meaningful lives with the help of low vision aids and devices.

They are up to date by using modern equipment to find problems early on. Fast, friendly, knowledgeab... le and on point with their prices. I couldn't be happier. The last optometrist I went to took almost a month to get my contacts and I had to pick them up at the office. This place had my contacts mailed to me in less than a week! What a difference.
