Patterns of Vision Loss

.

Central Vision

Macular degeneration affects central vision and is the leading cause of vision loss. This is the detailed vision we use when we read a book or look at faces. Central vision can be reported as missing, distorted, blurred or moderately obscured.

Peripheral Vision

Glaucoma, retinitis pigmentosa and strokes affects peripheral vision. This is the less detailed vision we use to see on the sides, above and below the central area.

Contrast Sensitivity

This is the ability to distinguish between objects of similar tones and facial features. All eye problems can decrease contrast sensitivity.

Independence

Even if surgery is no longer an option to correct visual impediments, patients are able to remain independent because of the advancement of low vision devices.

Fulfillment

The services and knowledge provided at the Low Vision center at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute will allow the young to complete their education, young adults to become or remain employed, and seniors to remain independent and fulfilled.

Compassion Care

Being mindful of the financial status of the visually impaired population who are often limited by monetary means, on a fixed or low income and frequently unemployed when visual impairment strikes suddenly, we often seek private or limited government funding to assist you. Note that Medicare, Medicaid, and other insurers typically do not pay for these devices, which can be challenging for the visually impaired of all ages. Expand your vision and see more in your life by taking advantage of these superb resources.
