Dr. Palmer specializes in designing low vision devices to help patients improve their ability to continue to live their lives and to enjoy a better quality of life. This includes providing low vision reading devices as well as low vision optical devices for use in a range of different activities from cooking and enjoying favorite hobbies and pastimes to driving and working.
With the choice of low vision devices for macular degeneration, patients can find ways to continue to participate in daily life and activities, even if other types of glasses no longer provide the vision support required.
With custom-designed low vision devices for driving, many patients will be able to continue to be mobile and active, extending their ability to operate their vehicle well beyond what may have been expected.
There are several options in low vision devices which may be considered for a patient. Dr. Palmer can design low vision microscope, telescope and prismatic glasses customized to the requirements of the individual patient. In addition, other magnification and non-optical low vision devices will also be considered.
Additionally, the patient will use the glasses during the evaluation ensuring the prescription and the type of glasses is effective. Glasses are carefully designed for the specific use requirements, including the amount of illumination present, which does have a significant impact.
