How Can We Help

Life After Vision Loss

An increasing number of Americans are seeing better with the help of technology.

Macular Degeneration is the most common eye disease amongst the senior population. As many as 25% of those over 65 have some degree of degeneration. Macular Degeneration, the number one cause of blindness for the population over 55 years old, is also the most common eye disease amongst the senior population with low vision. New technology allows optometrists like Dr. So to offer specially made devices to help such low vision patients to regain their control in completing certain specific daily tasks.

Believing there is life after vision loss, Dr. Jimmy So uses miniature telescopes positioned in prescription glasses to help those with vision deficiencies perform such activities as reading, writing, playing sports and games, watching TV, and in some cases even driving.

If you or someone you care about is struggling with vision loss, you can learn more by calling Dr. Jimmy So's office, toll-free 833-LOW-VISION. Our staff can arrange for you to speak to the doctor over the phone at no cost to see if you are a candidate for low vision care.
