Low Vision Care
Minor to drastic levels of handicap by poor vision can be assisted with various magnification and other technologies.
The psychological issues of dealing with LOSS are real, this aspect of optometry can be very frustrating, also amazingly rewarding, when the client arrives with a Blind Pension and I can provide a solution to achieve reading of the daily newspaper.
Rather than wail on that the ‘glass is half-empty’ I always perceive that the glass is ‘partly filled’, my job is to employ the remaining vision functions as usefully as possible.
When you book for this appointment, PLEASE BRING ALL GADGETRY that you have used, whether good or poor in performance, so I can learn what has gone before. Bring examples of tasks that annoy, so I can ‘get a handle on them’.
