process begins with a comprehensive eye examination by Dr. Politzer.
This gathers information about your eye health, visual status, and the
need for low vision care. If you are a candidate for low vision care, a
low vision evaluation will then be scheduled.
In the low vision evaluation, your specific needs and goals are
reviewed in depth. A variety of optical devices will be evaluated to
assist in obtaining your needs and goals. High power reading glasses
(microscopes), distance magnification systems (telescopes), hybrid
devices (telemicroscopes), magnifiers, special filters, and
electro-optical systems will be evaluated.
Your key to success is not only having the right optical devices,
but also, and just as important, is training in the use of your
prescribed low vision devices. The greater your needs, such as driving,
the greater the training required.
