Low Vision Care

Low vision doesn’t mean losing your independence or giving up the lifestyle you love.

What Is Low Vision?

People with low vision can’t see well enough to perform everyday tasks or enjoy favorite activities, even if they’re wearing glasses or contact lenses.

Common types of low vision include:

  • Loss of central vision
  • Loss of peripheral vision
  • Night blindness
  • Blurred vision
  • Hazy vision

What Causes Low Vision?

Some people are born with an ocular condition that limits their visual acuity. Others develop low vision later in life, from eye conditions like glaucoma, cataracts, or macular degeneration. Eye injuries can also cause low vision.

What Should I Do If I Have Low Vision?

Dr. Taylor Bowman is the low vision specialist at Cheyenne Eye Clinic & Surgery Center. Beyond diagnosing low vision, her goal is to help you learn new ways to use your remaining vision and maintain your quality of life.

During a low vision exam with Dr. Bowman you can expect to:

    • Establish how much vision you have remaining;
    • Experience a new way to determine proper eyeglasses prescription;
    • Review tasks and hobbies that are difficult for you due to the loss of vision;
    • Go over items and tools that you already have at home that can help with low vision;
    • Discover various devices to help increase magnification.

Low vision is a permanent condition, but with the right tools, you can manage your low vision and continue to live the life you love.
