Diagnosis and Treatment for Low Vision, Tampa, FL 

At I-Care Optical in Tampa, Florida, our skilled eye doctor Dr. Neil Patel diagnoses low vision and helps you improve your quality of life and make the most of your remaining vision. Living with low vision can be challenging, but with the right support and guidance, it’s possible to lead a fulfilling life. 

What is low vision? 

Low vision is vision loss that can’t be fully corrected with regular eyeglasses, contact lenses, medication, or surgery. People with low vision have reduced eyesight, which makes everyday tasks like reading, driving, shopping, or recognizing faces difficult. This condition can be caused by various eye diseases, including macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and others. 

Low vision isn’t blindness because some vision remains. The level of vision loss can vary widely, ranging from minor visual disturbances to almost total loss of sight. 

Diagnosing low vision 

When diagnosing low vision, we start with a thorough eye exam. Dr. Patel will evaluate your vision and eye health and ask about any difficulties you’re experiencing in your daily activities. We may also conduct specialized tests to assess your visual acuity, field of vision, and contrast sensitivity. This evaluation helps us understand the extent of your vision loss and determine the best treatment plan for you. 

Treatment for low vision 

While there is currently no cure for low vision, there are many treatments and strategies that can help you manage the condition and improve your quality of life. These may include prescription glasses or contact lenses, magnifying devices, large-print reading materials, and specific lighting conditions. At I-Care Optical, we provide personalized treatment plans tailored to your unique needs and lifestyle.
