Low Vision

View Video

Low vision is a loss of vision that cannot be improved with regular glasses or contact lenses and interferes with everyday function and performance. Often, vision impairments are caused by age-related diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and cataracts. This vision loss can be devastating, particularly for seniors who fear losing their independence.

Fortunately, vision for any age group can often be enhanced through the use of magnifiers, telescopes, special lighting, and low vision devices. Eye Center of Southern Connecticut stocks a wide variety of these vision aids, including products from Eschenbach Optik.
