Brief Description

At Pacific University's Low Vision Service the examinations are tailored to the patients' needs and desires. Individuals who have lost the ability to perform various tasks of daily living as a result of permanent uncorrectable vision are often faced with a loss of independence and a sense of frustration. The primary goal of our Low Vision Service is to enable these individuals to achieve maximum use of their remaining vision while maintaining as independent a life style as possible. Through an examination of the patient's remaining vision, various optical and non-optical devices and techniques to assist in these daily living skills are evaluated. These devices can range in complexity from various lighting and marking tools, to a full array of hand-held or head-borne optical devices, to highly sophisticated electronic devices.
