Low vision | IOA Madrid
It is important to clarify that poor vision does not treat the pathologies that cause deficient vision, but seeks to improve the vision that has decreased and increase the patient's remaining vision by means of optical or non-optical aids that enable performing many daily life tasks and provide greater autonomy.
In addition to the optical aids, as already mentioned above, low vision also uses no-optical aids, such as speaker systems that can read the information that appears on the screen of our mobile phone or telescopes that help us follow the lines of text that we read or write, among many others.
The patients who can benefit from the services of the Low Vision Department are :
- Patients with low vision, either in far-away vision on close-up vision.
- Patients who with good vision complain about reflections, glares or constant discomfort.
- Patients who want a greater visual acuity to carry out specific tasks (see electronic circuits, hobbies such as philately.
