What is Low Vision Optometry?

   Many people have a vision loss that is not correctable with typical eyeglasses or contact lenses.  They’ve lost some vision and are unable to see well enough to participate in activities that are important to them.  These people are said to have low vision.  Eye diseases like macular degeneration, Stargardt's Disease, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma, are among the many  causes of low vision.  Low vision is not the same as legal blindness.

    Dr. David L. Armstrong has helped many low vision patients see better and return to more normal lives.   Special telescopic or microscopic glasses can help the person return to reading, driving, using a computer, participating in hobbies or crafts.  Some people are able to return to work.

    Most of these people have been told by other eye doctors that nothing can be done to help them.   There is no cure for these eye diseases and the vision will not return to normal.  Dr. Armstrong evaluates the person’s remaining vision and prescribes appropriate glasses or other devices that magnify, making things easier to see.

    In this website you’ll see examples of types of low vision glasses that Dr. Armstrong prescribes.  There are accounts of  patients who are now more independent and less limited by their vision problems.    

    Dr. Armstrong will be happy to speak with you and help you decide if special telescopic or microscopic glasses will help you.  Call the toll free number below for a free telephone consultation with Dr. David L. Armstrong.
