Low Vision ServicesDr. Scott Gartner, Low Vision Specialist, providing a low vision evaluation to a participant.

Most people served by the Lighthouse are not totally blind, but rather partially sighted. The Low Vision Clinic provides a unique range of services to help people make the most of their residual eyesight. The Low Vision Specialist provides a complete evaluation, prescription of optical aids, along with hands-on training in their use. The optical aids prescribed include everything from hand held magnifiers, stand magnifiers, prism lenses, telescopes, microscopes, filters, lighting and the latest electronic magnification devices. Most are available on-site so the patient can try them out to handle specific tasks.
