Low Vision Screening
The Low Vision Center of Forsight Vision is located in the main office at 1380 Spahn Avenue, York. Low Vision is a term that describes a condition in which a person who is visually impaired has some useful vision but has difficulty performing every day tasks such as reading, watching television, doing laundry, etc.
When an eye care professional refers a patient to the Low Vision Center, the Low Vision Coordinator will call the patient to schedule an appointment. A comprehensive case history will be taken and an eye examination by our low vision specialist will be conducted. The patient’s motivation, needs, an attitude toward their vision impairment will be assessed as well.
Realistic goals are established and appropriate aids and appliances are evaluated, selecting what is best to meet each person’s individual needs. Emphasis is placed on maintaining independence.
