Low Vision Evaluation
Low vision evaluations are done by appointment at our North Brunswick NJ office, and typically take between 60-90 minutes.
In a low vision evaluation, our doctors will ask you to describe your vision, so we can understand what you can and cannot see. We will measure any glasses and magnifiers that you have been prescribed in the past. If you have specific things you would like to be able to see, please bring examples to your appointment.Read More
Once the refraction is complete, the doctor will determine if you will benefit from additional magnification. Low vision aids are devices that magnify objects at a distance or for near.
Telescopic glasses improve distance vision and can be worn for activities like watching television or seeing plays or sporting events. Some people are even able to drive using a special type of telescope called a bioptic. There are numerous ways to provide magnification for reading vision.Read More
