Treatment for Low Vision

Using vision aids can help you do the things you need and want to do. There are many kinds of vision aids. Low-vision centers and some doctors sell these aids. They also train you to use your aids. And they will talk with you about proper lighting.

Working with Your Eye Doctor

Your eye doctor will check your eyes and help you get the vision aids that will work best for you. Or, he or she may refer you to a low-vision specialist (an eye doctor who is trained to treat low vision). You'll most likely have glasses prescribed for you, too. Many vision aids are designed to be used along with glasses. Be sure to wear your glasses as directed.

Vision Aids

There are many aids to help you see better and make day-to-day living easier. These include:

  • High-power glasses or glasses with clip-on magnifying loops

Proper Lighting

  • Use a portable light with an adjustable arm. Place it close to what you're reading or doing.

  • Sit near a window during the day. At night, make sure there is plenty of lighting in the room.

  • Try a visor, a hat with a brim, or special lenses to reduce glare from lighting or the sun.
