Some people are born with various visual disabilities and others acquire them in life due to various diseases that may not be treatable.
Our low vision optometrists in Mississauga Vision Centre have a close working relationship with the CNIB Halton/Peel and are able to provide personalized comprehensive low vision evaluations at no cost to the patient, as well as the full spectrum of low vision aids available in the market. These low vision devices can be demonstrated to our patients upon their visit. Our affiliation with the Assistive Devices Program of Ontario (ADP) allows us to access 75% to 100% funding for these optical aids on behalf of our patients.
Some of these optical aids are: optical magnifiers, computer magnifiers, video magnifiers, spectacle magnifiers, telescopic magnifiers and other solutions to assist with activities of daily living of scholastic and vocational activities.
You can book directly with us for a low vision consultation for yourself or family who you feel may benefit. Our Mississauga eye doctors have transformed the lives of hundreds of visually impaired children and adults by prescribing low vision aids to assist them in overcoming their barriers to daily visual function required for every day living.
The low vision specialist at Mississauga Vision Centre can also recommend non-optical adaptive devices, such as large-print books, audio tapes, special light fixtures and signature guides for signing checks and documents. If necessary, your eye doctor or low vision specialist can also refer you to a counselor to help you cope with your loss of vision.
