Low Vision
Macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness affecting more Americans than cataracts and glaucoma combined. Although there's no cure, high-tech gadgets can make reading easier.

Knowledge of low vision aids along with a healthy dose of determination can prevent low vision from stealing the joy that rightfully belongs to you. Low Vision Care is not a surgical procedure or medicinal treatment, but rather a rehabilitative program to teach you new strategies to maximize your remaining vision.

In order to enhance the quality of life for people whose eyesight cannot be improved through medical or surgical treatments. Tri-County Association for the Blind opened its Low Vision Center in May 2003. Our goal is to provide a wide range of affordable high quality vision aids to those living with low vision. Our services offer patients the opportunity to make the best possible use of their remaining vision by offering a full range of low vision products. The use of these visual aids enables patients to resume many of their normal activities and regain a higher level of independence.

Tri-County’s Low Vision Center offers a wide range of low vision products, such as talking products, magnification devices, video magnifiers, UV sun shields and various daily living products to help make life easier for vision impaired people. For a free evaluation contact our Low Vision Specialist, Mike Barry, mbarry@cartmann.com.
