We Are Experienced Low Vision Practitioners That Can Help You Retain Your Independence & Adapt to Life With Low Vision.

Schedule Your Appointment Today

We’re here to help you manage your low vision. Call to schedule an appointment, or request an appointment online.

There are many causes of low vision, from physical injury to vision-threatening eye diseases like glaucoma or age-related macular degeneration. No matter the cause, a fundamental part of low vision management is the stabilization of the underlying problem.

We will meet regularly for comprehensive eye exams, where your eye health will be closely monitored. Diseases that can be successfully treated will be managed as appropriate, and every effort will be made to retain as much of your eyesight as possible.

For someone born sighted, low vision is a drastic change and imparts a huge impact on their quality of life. While we cannot restore lost vision, we can provide coaching, adaptation techniques, and specialized tools/software that can enhance your remaining vision and enable you to function independently.

Today, there are more tools available for low vision assistance than ever before. Magnification tools, both fixed and portable, allow for people living with low vision to read, cook, and watch TV.

The majority of these tools have one singular purpose: to enable you to see better. In most cases, magnification is utilized to increase the legibility of text and video displays.

You can configure your devices to facilitate your changed visual capabilities; both Windows & Mac computers, in addition to most smartphones available today, have built-in accessibility tools that can dramatically enhance display contrast, size, and script size.

While there are many tangible benefits that we can provide to our patients with low vision, we offer significant intangible support as well. Working together, we will coach you psychologically and prepare you mentally for the challenges you will face. Think of us as your pit crew, helping you whenever you need it.

Providing Experienced & Compassionate Low Vision Support Services in Lethbridge & Raymond.

In medical terms, low vision describes visual impairment that is not correctable through corrective surgery, medication, or corrective lenses. In most cases, people living with low vision have some level of visual acuity.

What Causes Low Vision?

The causes of low vision are varied, from physical trauma (such as a serious eye injury) to eye diseases (such as glaucoma, AMD, or cataracts).

Adapting to Life With Low Vision

We will help you adapt to a life with low vision. This adaptation includes incorporating assistive devices into your life, learning management techniques to assist with completing both basic and complex tasks, and learning to recognize your level of visual capability so you can compensate accordingly.

We are your partners throughout this process. Our role is to provide you excellent medical care, ensure your eyes are healthy, and provide tools and coping mechanisms designed to facilitate an independent and fulfilling life.

Comprehensive Eye Exams
