Low Vision treatment is often delivered by a Low Vision Specialist through the management of three variables:
Illumination is the low vision patient’s best friend. Most people with low vision find that additional lighting helps greatly in accomplishing visual tasks.
Magnification is an often employed as therapy for those with low vision because a most common result of low vision is blind spots or blocked out areas within the users’ field of view. These blind spots, called scotomas, represent obstacles that prevent the patient from identifying the object that is within view. By magnifying the object to be viewed, these scotomas become less of a barrier in recognizing the objects.
Education refers to training and counseling that your Low Vision Specialist will provide to you. Training will involve teaching new ways to accomplish familiar daily tasks made difficult by your vision loss. It may also involve instruction in the use of Low Vision Devices, which are the tools that provide magnification, illumination, or other assistance.
