Belmont Low Vision Center

Our Low Vision Center in Cambridge, MA

Low vision by definition is the unilateral or bilateral loss of eyesight that impairs daily tasks performance. This loss in vision is not adequately corrected by surgical, medical or conventional eyewear. Several common diseases can cause a permanent loss of vision including age related macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetes retinopathy, retinitis pigmentosa, stroke related vision loss, and eye injury. These diseases or eye injuries can cause marked decreased in visual acuity, loss of field of vision, loss of contrast sensitivity, or increased in sensitivity to light. All of these impaired vision factors can cause difficulty in everyday functioning such as driving, reading, writing, shopping or recognizing faces.

Low Vision Evaluation Exams and Treatment Options

Low vision impairment can be assisted through visual aids and rehabilitation services. A low vision examination includes careful evaluation of ocular and medical history with emphasis on daily tasks improvement. The low vision examination may entail exploration of hand held magnifiers or electronic magnifiers to improve reading labels or fine prints. Evaluation of various telescopes can improve distance spotting and widening of peripheral vision. Various colored lens filters can help enhance contrast and reduce glare outdoors as well as indoors.
