VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron DO YOU HAVE TROUBLE SEEING WITH GLASSES? If you have trouble seeing with your regular glasses, even though your prescription has been revised and updated, you may be suffering from "low vision." This term refers to vision loss that occurs despite treatment with eyeglasses, contact lenses, medicine, or surgery. It can be caused by diseases and health conditions such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), cataract, diabetes, glaucoma, eye injuries, and birth defects. In any case, it may not be possible to restore lost vision, but it is entirely possible to make the most of the vision you have left. If you currently experience problems recognizing the faces of family and friends, reading traffic signs, and selecting outfits, ask about "low vision aids." Today there are many low vision aids available on the market to help those with low vision to function independently in performing daily tasks. Computer use is one activity that often requires assistance, and the technology to aid computer users with low vision is always improving. SKOWRON EYE CARE has been providing personal, cutting-edge eye care for patients in the Western suburbs since 1983. At Skowron Eye Care, your 20/20 vision is our mission. P.S. Low vision aids (devices designed to help people with poor vision see better) include standing and hand-held magnifiers, strong magnifying reading glasses, loupes, and small telescopes.
