What Does "Low Vision" Mean?

Low vision refers to vision loss that can’t be corrected with standard glasses, contact lenses or surgery. However, it isn't considered blindness as limited eyesight remains. Symptoms typically include blind spots, poor night vision and blurred vision. Low vision is commonly caused by age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetes.

Fortunately, people with low vision can continue living full and meaningful lives with the help of low vision aids and devices.

Low Vision FAQs

What are low vision devices?

Low vision aids and devices maximize whatever usable vision you have left and help you maintain or regain your independence. These include electronic aids, such as screen readers and video magnifiers. Optical aids include standing and hand-held magnifiers, strong magnifying reading glasses, and small telescopes, among others. To learn more, contact Hawk's Prairie Vision Clinic today.

What conditions can cause low vision?

Low vision can be caused by a number of eye conditions and diseases, including age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetes, eye cancer, albinism, and genetic eye disorders. Eye injuries and traumatic brain injuries can also result in vision loss. If you or a loved one has low vision, contact our practice to learn how we can help you carry out your daily tasks more effectively.

How can one obtain a low vision aid or device?

The process begins with a comprehensive low vision eye exam by our low vision team. Once we’ve determined your degree and type of vision loss, we’ll ask you about your lifestyle and suggest the aids or devices that can help you most. Then, we’ll show you exactly how to use your new aids independently and answer any of your questions.

The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, exam is thorough yet quick! The only negative I would have ... is frame selection is smaller. I like my simple black frames and there was only a couple to choose from, everything else was colors or metals. But still a great place!

Been coming here for years for myself and my children. I have even referred my brother to this locat... ion! As a mother of three and a wife to someone that is in the military it can be EXTREMELY difficult to schedule appointments for myself. The last time I came my husband was gone for training and I had to bring my kids with me. They were so nice and understanding. I have a non verbal child and during the exam she was being a little fussy towards the end. I apologized to Dr. Piranio who reassured me that it's okay he has littles himself. Greatly appreciate him!

I am so fortunate to have found HPVC for my vision care and recommend HPVC 100%. I've been coming t... o this clinic since before they moved to this location. I feel cared for by all of the friendly, supportive, and professional staff. The front desk staff are very efficient, welcoming, and cheerful. Dr Durham's assistant, Barb, is calm, patient and All of the Above! Her experience makes me feel confident and relaxed. I can't say enough about my excellent vision care from Dr Durham.
