A low vision optometrist diagnoses and manages eye conditions and diseases that cause low vision.

Low vision is described as a visual impairment that can’t be corrected with traditional eyeglasses, contact lenses, medication, or surgery.

The ultimate goal for a low vision optometrist like Dr. Esther Ahn is to allow patients to regain their independence and confidence while doing the everyday activities they love. Dr. Esther Ahn is also a member of the International Academy of Low Vision Specialists (IALVS). She is a part of a network of low vision optometrists that have studied extensively, and have experience in providing exceptional low vision care.

Common Causes of Low Vision

Low vision is caused by a variety of eye conditions, such as wet and dry macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, ocular albinism, retinitis pigmentosa, and other conditions that cause visual impairment.

How We Can Help

Our low vision optometrist will assess your functional vision and determine the best course of treatment to help you maximize your remaining vision. This may involve prescribing low vision aids, such as low vision glasses (bioptic telescope glasses, prism glasses, and E-scoop glasses) and devices that magnify vision. Examples include CCTV and video magnifiers.
