Ways Dr. Douglas can help you with your Low Vision
If you or a loved one are now having problems seeing and doing the things you have enjoyed, Dr. Douglas can help. If you have been told by your eye doctor that a change in your eyeglass prescription will not help you see any better, call Dr. Douglas who is trained to design special glasses that can make a difference. Are you tired of hearing “NOTHING MORE CAN BE DONE”? Are you frustrated at having to use hand magnifiers to read? Whether you have Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy, inoperable cataracts, glaucoma or any other condition causing vision loss, call 1 (888) 243-2020 for an interview. Dr. Douglas will recommend an appointment only if she believe she can help.*
1. Spectacle Mounted Telescopes
Designed for tasks requiring better central vision and mobility, these glasses are used by drivers to see signs and traffic lights, grandparents to see grandchildren playing soccer and bridge players to see cards on the table.
2. ClearImage II Microscope Glasses
Two high-powered lenses “piggybacked” for crystal clear images are prescribed for reading small print.
3. Spectacle Prismatic Glasses
These moderate powered lenses are useful for near tasks like reading, writing and handicrafts.
4. E-Scoop Contrast Enhancing Glasses
These lenses combine five special optical elements that create a larger, clearer, higher contrast image. One patient improved his golf score dramatically wearing them. Another explained, “This is the clearest I have seen in years.”
5. Nutritional Counseling
Years after the landmark AREDS 1 and 2 (Age-Related Eye Disease Studies), exceptional advances in scientific knowledge allow us to recommend proper nutrients to retard the progression of conditions like Macular Degeneration.
6. Illumination Counseling
The aging retina of the eye requires increased illumination to achieve better vision. We will recommend low vision designed lamps and bulbs for best results at home.
7. Driving Rehab
Loss of independence is the single most devastating result of vision loss. To pass DMV vision requirements, the better eye must test better than 20/200. Dr. Douglas can test your vision for DMV qualification and prescribe telescopic glasses to help you meet the state vision requirements. To obtain a bioptic drivers license the state requires proof of completion of at least 30 hours of behind the wheel training from a state-approved instructor. The patient must also successfully pass a drivers skill test with a state-approved tester.
8. Implantable Miniature Telescopes
This cataract implant is surgically placed in one eye to magnify distance images. There are many criteria for acceptance into the program to minimize the risks that are always present with surgery. *Dr. Douglas will Refer for this service
