We Offer a Range of Optical Low Vision Devices in Las Vegas
If you have Low Vision, your regular prescription glasses probably do not provide you with adequate vision for all of your tasks. Fortunately, there are many low vision devices to enhance your sight. To benefit from the best devices for your condition, our Low Vision eye doctor will perform a thorough eye exam and evaluation. Then we’ll match you with a suitable optical aid so you can enjoy all your favorite activities and optimize your sight for daily life!
“Near” Optical Devices for Low Vision
Do you want to read or focus on objects or activities up-close? Magnifying reading glasses are an effective and convenient way to improve your near vision. You’ll be able to focus on fine print and details, such as when writing, reading, and sewing.
Along with upgrading your ability to see things that are near, magnifying reading glasses allow you to read comfortably for longer periods of time. They will give you a wider field of view, so you can read more text at once.
Reading glasses can be taken anywhere, which makes them one of the most convenient low vision devices. They are fully portable and leave your hands free – with no need to hold a magnifier. This is very useful for people who want to read a computer screen, follow sheet music, or do fine needlework.
Tips for Using Your New Magnifying Reading Glasses
Sometimes when you first begin to wear your reading glasses, you may find that they don’t offer the same crisp vision as you experienced when you tried them in our Las Vegas optical practice. Don’t worry – this is normal! It can take a bit of time, patience, and practice until you get used to any low vision glasses or aid.
Give yourself some time to figure out the best position to hold your reading material or task at hand. You may have to get used to placing the text at a different distance from your eyes. While this may feel uncomfortable at first, your brain and eyes will adapt. A reading stand or clipboard can be helpful to expand your field of view. You may also need to experiment with various lighting conditions until you find the best home set-up. Usually, the brighter the lighting, the better your visual clarity.
