Contact Lens and Low Vision Aids
Contact lens are devices made of medical grade plastic materials used mainly for correction of refractive error. They offer a more active spectacle free life, greater cosmestic acceptability, better & clearer images, lack of misting and a wider field of view than spectacles. The contact lens clinic at Spectra Eye provides contact lens trial, fitting and dispensing for cases ranging from simple refractive errors to complex corneal surfaces such as post-transplant eyes and patients with keratoconus.
Low vision evaluation is a process that helps to assess the visual needs of a person with low vision. An ophthalmologist or optometrist who specializes in low vision, performs a comprehensive visual function evaluation using special charts. After thorough examination, the ophthalmologist gives advice on the following:
- Optimum use of vision
- The low vision devices required and their usage.
- The best adaptation to home, school, the workplace and nearby surroundings.
