Assistive vision aids

Someone diagnosed with an eye disease like macular degeneration or glaucoma, or a diabetes-related condition, may need extra help to see. Our eye care experts offer special assistive devices to help patients with vision impairment function better in everyday life.

What you should know about assistive vision aids

  • Assistive vision aids include magnifiers, telescopes, video technology and other visual aids.
  • It’s best to start at early stages of vision loss. Early experience with assistive devices can help make it easier to adapt to more serious vision loss later.
