When limitations in your vision interfere with your ability to perform daily activities safely and effectively, and when your vision problems cannot be corrected with glasses or surgery, you might benefit from an evaluation by a low vision specialist. They can make recommendations for low vision aids to improve your vision, and on ways to maximize the vision that you have. We can provide you with a referral to a low vision specialist to see if there’s anything that can be offered to improve your ability to function and do the things that you like to do.
