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.
At the start of the evaluation, the doctor will perform a low vision refraction to determine whether an eyeglass prescription will improve the vision, and the level of magnification that you will need. Even people who have been told that eyeglasses will not help them need to have the low vision refraction done.
