Low Vision Rehabilitation Near Salt Lake City
We perform a low vision screening to determine if you are a candidate for low vision services, and we will not waste your time or money if you are not a low vision patient. During our screening process, we have three steps we do:
- Determine low vision patient’s visual acuity
- Determine the amount of vision needed for specific tasks
- We figure out which visual aids and devices are a best fit for the patient.
These type of eyeglasses use a prism, in either a single or double lens, which allows the eyes to cooperatively work together.
The EScoop Lens is meant to be placed over the existing eyewear to ensure better sight. The five parts of the lens put together are what makes the lenses help low vision patients see better by shifting the focus to a different part of the macula.
These are used such as a binocular, but the option for the glasses can be for one or both eyes. They can be used in any position in order to enhance the visual acuity of the patient.
The microscopic lenses are a two lens system which combines the patient’s prescription with a magnification.The magnification is built into the eyewear to ensure that the vision is clear. They are usually used in a monocular fashion, with only one eye.
