Low vision has a variety of causes, including eye injury, diseases and heredity. Sometimes low vision involves a lack of acuity, meaning that objects do not come into focus. Other times, it involves the ability to distinguish colours, see contrasts or determine spatial relationships among objects. Vision can be hazy with cataracts, blurred or partially obscured in the central visual zone with macular degeneration, and distorted or blurred with diabetic retinopathy. People with glaucoma or retinal detachment can lose peripheral vision and have difficulty seeing at night.

Doctor with patient

What should I do?

The first step is to visit an eye physician who specializes in low vision care. Dr. Patodia, who specializes in low vision care, can evaluate the degree and type of vision loss. Once this is determined, he can prescribe appropriate low vision aids such as magnifiers, telescopes, and video magnifiers, and train the patient to use them.

Micro Permiter MP1 Imaging

Once the detection of damage to the eye has occurred, the Micro Permiter MP1 gives Dr. Patodia new insights into what portions of the retina can be “trained” to replace in function to the damaged areas.
