We Want to Help You to Have a Better Life

We’re working hard to redefine vision loss. Our goal is to help you do the things you enjoy for a rich, satisfying life. The right combination of skills and experience from a knowledgeable IALVS doctor along with Low Vision prescription glasses and aids or devices can give you that high quality of life you deserve.

If you or a loved one are now having problems seeing and doing the things you have enjoyed, an IALVS eye doctor can help. If you have been told by your eye doctor that a change in your eyeglass prescription will not help you see any better, call IALVS doctor who is trained to design special glasses that can make a difference.

Are you tired of hearing “NOTHING MORE CAN BE DONE”? Are you frustrated at having to use hand magnifiers to read? Call a member of The International Academy of Low Vision Specialists for a free telephone interview. We design glasses to help you do the things you love to do, including:

Driving – Reading – Writing – Watching Television – Playing Cards – Seeing Faces and more!

Whether you have Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy, Inoperable Cataracts, Glaucoma or any other condition causing vision loss, call 1-888-778-2030 for an interview. We will offer an appointment only if we believe we can help.

The aging retina of the eye requires increased illumination to achieve better vision. We will recommend low vision designed lamps and bulbs for best results at home.

8. Driving Rehabilitation

Loss of independence is the single most devastating result of vision loss. To pass DMV vision requirements, the better eye must test better than 20/200. We can test your vision for DMV qualification, and we have DMV certified handicapped driving instructors to assist you in passing the drive test.
