Low vision rehabilitation is like physical therapy. Its purpose is to develop strategies to substitute for diminished sight in order to maintain independence. This rebuilding and reinforcement of the visual foundation is accomplished through identification of goals, introduction to assistive devices, and training.
After a through evaluation, Dr. Angela Koplos will be able to prescribe the specific magnifying aids and modern digital devices that will enable you to lead the best life possible.
Low vision means that a minimal amount of sight remains intact. There are millions of people who suffer from the condition and manage to function with the remaining vision available to them through the use of visual rehabilitation or visual aids.
What are visual aids?
These are devices that help people with low vision function by maximizing their remaining eyesight. Through training and the use of special lenses, powered glasses magnifiers and specialized adaptive equipment, we help maximize use of the residual vision to improve visual performance, independence and quality of life for the visually impaired individual.
