When conventional spectacles can no longer help and surgery or medical treatment is not appropriate, or very prolonged, then it is time to consider low vision aids. These come in a wide range from simple hand-held magnifiers to electronic devices. Different ones are needed for different visual tasks. Low Vision Aids do not cure the cause of the vision problem but rather utilize the remaining vision to its fullest potential. Low vision care also does not replace the need for other concurrent treatments such as laser, medication and surgery.
