Our Low Vision Optometrist
Dr. David YESnick, O.D., is passionate about helping people with low vision. Along with his wife Sandy, Nevada’s only board certified low vision therapist, they have brought joy to the lives of countless people experiencing the difficulty of living with low vision and vision impairment. Dr. David and Sandy YESnick have been at the forefront of fighting for the rights of people with low vision and have started a non profit to assist those who can not afford low vision care.
Dr. YESnick says “Many of our patients come in from all over the country and the world having been told there was nothing that could be done. They felt that their lives as they had known it was done, computers, driving, work, mobility were no longer a viable option. With so many advances in technology, we are able to offer our patients the ability to live life with dignity, mobility and productivity that was only a dream before. We are truly blessed to be at the forefront of treatment for low vision, and to bring so much joy to our patients.”
Macular Degeneration is an eye disease that causes low vision. It affects roughly 2 million Americas and is expected to double over the next 3 decades. Macular Degeneration is often characterized by experiencing blind spots spots and blurred vision, and in the early stages may lack noticeable symptoms.

Low Vision Aids
The massive improvements in technology have revolutionized the way people with low vision watch television, read a book, or drive a car. Innovations in digital magnifiers created vast options for both handheld and stand options for magnification.
The innovations in the market are not limited to magnifiers, but great strides have been made in lenses, telescope glasses/bioptics, computer software, and prismatic readers.
Never before has the need been so great for guidance from an expert optometrist to walk you through the options and help you understand what technology will provide you with the greatest impact.

What Is Your Low Vision Evaluation?
The Low Vision evaluation consists of three steps:
- Find out the amount of vision the patient has.
- Find out the amount of vision needed to do the task desired.
- Figure out the best magnification device that allows the person to do the task.
We find out the amount of vision the patient
has by performing a low vision evaluation.
It is not anything like a regular eye exam:
- We use special charts and techniques to
“draw out” any residual vision that may be “hiding” in the periphery.
- We recheck the regular eyeglass prescription to improve it if possible.
- We see how magnification affects the level of vision.
- We use special charts and techniques to
We find out the amount of vision needed to do the task desired with very specific questions
- We ask the patient to bring samples of print they want to see (kindles, stock market pages, newspaper…).
- We ask the patient to bring samples of activities they do (needlework, playing cards…).
We figure out the best magnification device that allows the person to do the task by
having many unique demonstrators in the office.
We do not order any low vision device unless we prove that it works in the office first.
