Preserve Your Vision For Longer

What Does "Low Vision" Mean?

Low vision refers to vision loss that can’t be corrected with standard glasses, contact lenses or surgery. However, it isn't considered blindness as limited eyesight remains. Symptoms typically include blind spots, poor night vision and blurred vision. Low vision is commonly caused by age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetes.

Fortunately, people with low vision can continue living full and meaningful lives with the help of low vision aids and devices.

Great group of people... my glasses broke and of all the optical places my wife and I traveled the F... ond du Lac area to see what could be done, Family Focus staff was interested and concerned about our/my needs. They took the time to see what could be done and gave guidance to the best process at the time. Our choices were very limited but they generally cared. After we left and were at a recommended jewelry shop to get my glasses temporarily fixed, the staff called the jeweler to advise of a cancelation and if I would like the opening and I wasn't even a registered patient....I am now. Even though there was not much that could have been done to assist at that moment the Family Focus made my wife and I feel like Family... Thank you so much for customer support and follow up, which is hard to come by today. We were blessed for stopping and our support and patronage is theirs.

Optical aids include standing and hand-held magnifiers, strong magnifying reading glasses, and small telescopes, among others. To learn more, contact Family Focus EyeCare today.

What conditions can cause low vision?

Low vision can be caused by a number of eye conditions and diseases, including age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetes, eye cancer, albinism, and genetic eye disorders. Eye injuries and traumatic brain injuries can also result in vision loss. If you or a loved one has low vision, contact our practice to learn how we can help you carry out your daily tasks more effectively.

Once we’ve determined your degree and type of vision loss, we’ll ask you about your lifestyle and suggest the aids or devices that can help you most. Then, we’ll show you exactly how to use your new aids independently and answer any of your questions.
