What is included in a Low Vision Exam? 

  1. We start off with a conversation about your eye condition, the impact it has on your lifestyle, and your specific visual goals. 
     

  2. After determining your level of vision, we conduct a detailed and thorough check of your glasses prescription.
     

  3. Next, we recommend and assess low vision devices calculated to your eye strength.
     

  4. Depending on your interest, we will review various low vision resources and community agencies available.
