40 Years Of Helping People With Vision Loss
Our patients are often moved to tears when they can get back to doing the things they love. We have shared some of our patient's experiences in order to show the dramatic life-changing nature of low vision care.
A Low Vision Eye Exam should be conducted as soon as you have received a diagnosis of an eye disease or condition that could lead to Low Vision. A Low Vision optometrist stays up to date on the latest research in slowing down the progression of vision loss, so it is essential to book a Low Vision exam right away. Most of our patients visit us after years of struggling with severe vision loss. If you or a loved one have a visual impairment, call our Low Vision doctor for a free phone consultation to understand how you may be helped. If you are in doubt our Abilene low vision optometrist can help, we encourage you to call and Dr. Larry M. Chism will be happy to discuss your concerns on the phone.
A low vision optometrist fits custom vision aids and devices, which allow the Low Vision patient to maximize the use of their remaining vision in the most effective way possible. This allows someone suffering from Low Vision to regain their ability to perform everyday tasks, as well as their independence and human dignity.
For example, A 65-year-old patient with Macular Degeneration wanted to be able to go shopping and visit people without feeling like a burden on others. Our Low Vision optometrist, Dr. Larry M. Chism, custom designed bioptic telescope glasses that enabled the patient to drive, read, and go shopping once again, without needing the help of others.
Driving rules are complex and constantly changing. We have helped low vision patients from all over Texas regain their independence and drive again with bioptic telescope glasses.
