Low Vision

clipart 036Are you or is someone you know one of the 6 million people suffering from age-related macular degeneration (AMD) or one of the 10 million people with severe vision impairment in the United States? If so, you’re not alone. The number of visually impaired people is expected to double in the next 10 years. As the numbers increase, more and more people will find routine activities such as reading their newspaper, mail, and writing checks a difficult task. Unfortunately, most of these individuals are told there is nothing that can be done about their condition. From a physiological point-of-view this may be true, but there are options available to improve the quality of life for many of these patients.

These options include visual aids such as large print publications and checks, hand held magnifiers for reading, and telescopes for spotting distant objects. These devices work wonderfully for many patients but others find them very difficult. Other problems patients encounter with such devices is inadequate lighting and a small viewing area in which to read.

For many people, Enhanced Vision Systems has become a synonymous name for developing advanced and innovative product solutions for Macular Degeneration and other Low Vision impairment.

Davis EyeCare Associates has helped many visually impaired people enjoy a more productive lifestyle. With the use of EVS products, patients have again enjoyed everyday activities such as reading a book, writing a letter, watching TV or viewing a loved one!
