February is Low Vision Awareness Month, a time to bring attention to the challenges faced by those with low vision and the importance of seeking help. Low vision affects millions worldwide and can significantly impact daily activities and quality of life.

Low vision is a visual impairment that cannot be corrected with standard glasses, contact lenses, medication, or surgery. It encompasses a range of conditions including reduced visual acuity, loss of peripheral vision, and color blindness, among others. People with low vision may struggle with tasks like reading, driving, or recognizing faces.

This month, we encourage everyone to learn more about low vision, including its causes, such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma. Early detection and treatment are crucial in managing these conditions.

There are various adaptive technologies and strategies available to assist those with low vision. These include magnifiers, telescopes, specialized lighting, large-print materials, and digital applications that enhance vision or provide auditory substitutes.

If you or someone you know is experiencing vision problems, it's important to consult with an eye care professional for a comprehensive evaluation. They can offer guidance or make a referral on managing low vision and improving life quality.

Let's use this month to spread awareness about low vision, support those who live with it, and advocate for advancements in treatments and resources. Remember, low vision should not limit the possibilities of a full and independent life.

January marks National Glaucoma Awareness Month, a crucial time to focus on a silent thief of vision that affects millions worldwide. Glaucoma, often referred to as the "silent thief of sight," is a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve and can lead to vision loss and blindness. This blog aims to shed light on the impact of glaucoma on vision, its signs and symptoms, and its connection to low vision.

Glaucoma is a progressive eye disease that damages the optic nerve, usually due to an increase in intraocular pressure (IOP). The optic nerve is responsible for transmitting visual information from the eye to the brain. As the nerve fibers deteriorate, blind spots develop in the visual field, and if left untreated, it can lead to permanent vision loss.

Glaucoma typically affects peripheral vision first, making it challenging for individuals to notice gradual changes. Over time, the disease can advance and affect central vision, leading to significant visual impairment. Since glaucoma progresses slowly and often without noticeable symptoms in its early stages, regular eye examinations are crucial for early detection and intervention.

- Gradual Peripheral Vision Loss: One of the key indicators is the gradual loss of peripheral vision, often unnoticed until it reaches an advanced stage.
- Blurred Vision: As the optic nerve damage advances, individuals may experience blurred or hazy vision.
- Halos and Glare: Glaucoma can cause increased sensitivity to light, leading to the perception of halos or glare around lights.
Headaches and Eye Pain: In some cases, individuals may experience headaches and eye pain, particularly when the intraocular pressure is significantly elevated.

Low vision refers to significant visual impairment that cannot be corrected with traditional glasses, contact lenses, medication, or surgery. Glaucoma is a leading cause of low vision and blindness worldwide. The irreversible damage to the optic nerve compromises the ability to see details and can greatly impact daily activities such as reading, driving, and recognizing faces.

- Regular Eye Exams: Comprehensive eye examinations are crucial, especially for individuals over the age of 40 or those with a family history of glaucoma.
- Eye Pressure Monitoring: Regular monitoring of intraocular pressure can help identify individuals at risk.
- Lifestyle Modifications: Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise, a balanced diet, and avoiding smoking, can contribute to overall eye health.
- Medication and Surgery: Depending on the type and severity of glaucoma, medications or surgical interventions may be recommended to manage intraocular pressure and slow down the progression of the disease.

By understanding the impact of glaucoma on vision, recognizing its signs and symptoms, and acknowledging its connection to low vision, individuals can take the necessary steps to preserve their sight. Regular eye examinations, healthy lifestyle choices, and prompt intervention can make a significant difference in managing glaucoma and maintaining optimal eye health.

Accepted Insurance

A vision insurance policy is not the same as health insurance. Regular health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.

Because we provide both medical and routine eye care, we accept a number of insurance plans to help cover the cost depending on your individual needs. Here are just some of the plans that we accept:
