Low vision services do not cure the cause of the vision problem but rather utilize the remaining vision to its fullest potential. Low vision care does not replace the need for other concurrent treatments such as laser, medication and surgery. Low vision doctors prescribe prescription eyewear, filters, microscopic — telescopic eyewear, magnifiers, adaptiveequipment, closed circuit television systems, independent living aids, training and counsel patients.
The objective of low vision services is to provide special training or equipment so that visually impaired can join in
activities in the home, school and community.
