Low Vision Aids
According to the latest result from the Disability Survey 2013 conducted by Statistics New Zealand, there was over 160,000 New Zealanders suffering from vision impairment that year. As the population of our country grows older, those numbers will only increase. Macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and many other conditions and hereditary diseases can cause impaired vision and consequently lead to low vision.
Low vision affects many daily activities that most people would take for granted such as reading, writing, watching TV, or spotting objects from a distance. With correct optical device and training, low vision patients will be able to perform their routine activities and regain independence again.
Our practice carries Eschenbach Low Vision Aids. For over 100 years, Eschenbach has been known for its quality, innovation and exceptionally precise optics. It is the leading source of Low Vision Aids in the world.
