NABA Low Vision Services

At NABA, our certified low vision specialist, Monica Casey-Gee, OD, will conduct a low vision examination to assess how  magnification will allow the individual to function with their remaining vision, and  then determine the correct
amount of magnification needed and the  type of device best suited to the situation.

Devices prescribed may include high-powered reading glasses, lighted magnifiers,  closed circuit televisions, as well  as distance aids. Vision rehabilitation  therapy, and/or orientation and mobility  instruction, may also be recommended.

NABA recognizes the unique needs of those with remaining vision. When vision cannot be corrected with regular eyeglasses to 20/70 or better, the condition is known as low vision.

Simple tasks such as reading, writing, shopping, cooking, and watching television become difficult for an individual. At the Dr. Harry M. Judge Vision Rehabilitation Center, NABA valuates the person’s functional vision and his/her ability to use available equipment for maximizing use of remaining vision.

As background on low vision, the condition can be attributed to a variety of causes such as: age-related macular degeneration (AMD), cataracts, diabetes, glaucoma, eye injuries, and/or birth defects. Individuals with the condition may have difficulty recognizing faces, selecting and matching the color of their clothes, seeing clearly with the lights on or feeling that the lights are dimmer than normal, and reading newspaper or regular print.
