Preserve Your Vision For Longer

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.

Wow, what amazing service! Dr. McMahon and his staff are incredibly helpful and very professional. ... I am extremely near sighted, and wear mono contact lenses, so when my former optometrist retired from Envision Optics, they told me that they no longer could care for me as a patient. I was fortunate enough to find that Eye World specializes in complex prescriptions, and they accepted my insurance. I’ll most certainly will be bringing my daughter and husband here for their eye exams. Recommended! 5/5.
