Experienced Low Vision Specialists Located in Downtown Butler & Cranberry Township
Low vision is the term used to describe any condition or injury that results in legal blindness. This can be from an eye disease (such as glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy) or from a physical injury to the eye.
We provide coping techniques, adaptation strategies, and tools that help our patients remain independent. Each person’s experience with low vision is unique- we work with our patients individually to help them move and function independently.
Understandably, low vision can be difficult for many people to work with. We’re here to improve our patient quality of life.
Dr. Dittman and Dr. Nock are experienced in working and supporting people with low vision. Schedule an appointment to speak to one of our Optometrists.
