Low vision refers to irreversible vision loss that is not correctable by standard glasses, contacts, refractive surgery, or medicine. Diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and glaucoma are the most common conditions that lead to low vision. Our primary goal is to help people from 1-101 maximize the functional vision that is remaining. Although there are terms like legal blindness, it often does a disservice; many times there is quite a bit of functional vision remaining. Through comprehensive rehabilitation, patients with low vision are trained to maximize the vision they do have. Assistive devices, optical devices and training can enhance how patients use their vision to: maximize their independence, better their quality of life, and improve function at a very high level. Dr. Anthony Huynh is residency trained in low vision rehabilitation and can help people with a variety of visual goals.
