Low Vision Devices

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 eye doctor Dr. Melanie Datta-Bose has 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 everyday living.

Any of our low vision specialists 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.
