At Park Professional Eyecare, our Morris Park eye doctor specializes in all types of vision correction issues, eye diseases and conditions including low vision. Low vision cannot be fully corrected by traditional or regular prescriptions lenses, and it cannot be healed with surgery or medical treatments. Low vision does not necessarily mean one is blind, however, it means that your visual impairment is a bit more severe than most cases because it takes a different kind of treatment. Those with low vision still have enough vision to be improved with special visual devices.
Low vision may be characterized by blurry vision or loss of central vision. Blurry vision may be caused by conditions such as cataracts, corneal scars or in more severe cases, diabetic retinopathy. Loss of central vision usually happens due to macular degeneration. Macular degeneration is a disease of the retina that causes damage to the central vision, but not the entire scope of vision. It does cause low vision, however. And if you are experiencing loss of peripheral vision, glaucoma may be the culprit. All of these diseases and conditions can contribute to low vision. Our Morris Park eye doctor can schedule a full examination in order to diagnose and find out which problem may be causing the low vision.
