Low Vision

GlaucomaEye Services of Jackson is a full-service, primary care optometric practice that specializes in serving the visually impaired and blind.

What is low-vision?
People with low vision have a reduced ability to see that cannot be fully corrected by surgery, medicine, conventional eyeglasses or contact lenses. This reduced ability may be due to disease or injury.

Eye diseases such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma may make it difficult, or even impossible, to participate in everyday activities such as reading, writing, watching TV or enjoying hobbies.

What can be done?
Eye Services of Jackson provides low vision rehabilitation to train patients to use adaptive techniques. There are also many affordable, high-quality tools available to increase your independence and keep you active every day.

With a variety of screen sizes and magnification, finding the right solution for your lifestyle is easy. Small, lightweight designs provide an effective way for you to read at home or while traveling. Labels, prescriptions, price tags, menus and dimly rooms will no longer be a problem.

Let us help you continue to enjoy all the activities you love most. Call today to schedule an appointment to learn more.
