Preserve Your Vision For Longer

What Does "Low Vision" Mean?

Low vision refers to vision loss that can’t be corrected with standard glasses, contact lenses or surgery. However, it isn't considered blindness as limited eyesight remains. Symptoms typically include blind spots, poor night vision and blurred vision. Low vision is commonly caused by age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetes.

Fortunately, people with low vision can continue living full and meaningful lives with the help of low vision aids and devices.

I can't believe I didn't do this sooner but this review is necessary and overdo! I cannot say enough... good things about doctor Jennings. I recently went on Accutane and my eyes dried up so badly that I sought help. Dr Jennings was so honest and thorough with me, and most of all extremely caring. She knew exactly what she was talking about and everything she predicted was exactly right. I am so thankful for her and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a caring provider.
