Low-vision eye care is also available at EyeCare 20/20 in East Hanover. Because vision operates on a continuum, Dr. Silverman and his associates provide a range of eyecare services to correct vision impairments that exist along that continuum and affect a variety of individuals.

What is Low Vision?

Individuals with low vision suffer from reduced visual acuity and/or an obstructed field of vision, but will still have some usable vision. At EyeCare 20/20, low-vision devices are available that can improve the quality of vision for individuals with this condition. After a thorough evaluation, a low-vision specialist can determine what devices will provide the greatest improvement to the patient’s vision.

Devices for Low Vision Assistance

Some of the optical devices to assist individuals with low vision include:

  • Specially-designed reading glasses and lenses
  • Telescopes
