What is Low Vision Optometry?

   There are many people who 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.  We say that these people have low vision.  Eye diseases like macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma, among others, are common causes of low vision.  Low vision is not the same as legal blindness.

    For  years Dr. David L. Armstrong has helped low vision patients see better so they can return to more normal lives.  He prescribes special telescopic or microscopic glasses which help the person return to reading, driving, using a computer, participating in hobbies or crafts.  Some people are able to return to work.

    In most cases these people have been told by other eye doctors that nothing can be done to help them.  It is true that there is no cure for these eye diseases and the vision will not return to normal.  The job of a low vision optometrist like Dr. Armstrong is to evaluate the person’s remaining vision and prescribe appropriate glasses or other devices which magnify what is seen, making it easier to see.

    Look over this website and you’ll see examples of types of low vision glasses that Dr. Armstrong prescribes.  There is testimony from patients of Dr. Armstrong’s whose lives are now more normal 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.
