Low Vision Evaluation

The Free Low Vision Screening is required to determine and show you, if you are a good candidate for our products and services. We will not waste a persons time or money if we believe we cannot help them.

2. The Low Vision Fitting process consists of three steps:

  1. We find the amount of vision the patient has by performing a low vision evaluation. It is not anything like a regular eye exam:
    • We use special charts and techniques to “draw out” any residual vision that may be “hiding” in the periphery.
    • We recheck the regular eyeglass prescription to improve it if possible.
    • We see how magnification affects the level of vision.
    • We find out the amount of vision needed to do the task desired with very specific questions and demonstrations.
  2. We find the amount of vision needed to do the task desired with very specific questions and demonstrations.
    • We ask the patient to bring samples of print they want to see (racing charts, stock market pages, automobile repair manuals…).
    • We ask the patient to bring samples of activities they do (needlework, spark plugs, bridge cards…).
  3. We determine the best magnification device and system that allows the person to do the task by having many unique demonstrators in the office.
