Low Vision Evaluation

We are low vision specialists.

A low vision evaluation examination starts with a conversation between you and Dr. Wood. This conversation is intended to discuss specific vision goals. Dr. Wood prioritizes visual function and how it affects your quality of life. We believe that concentrating solely on visual acuity misses the point of functioning vision.

During a low vision evaluation, prescription low vision glasses and low vision aids may be recommended to help you reach your goals. Common causes of vision loss among Americans over the age of 40 include diabetes, age-related macular degeneration, and glaucoma. Common causes of vison loss in children include cortical vision impairment, albinism, optic nerve hypoplasia, retinopathy of prematurity, and congenital cataracts.
