Visit Our Cataract Center

Cataract patients now have the option to have their vision corrected to allow them to see at both near and far distances after cataract surgery! These lens implants provide significantly reduced dependence on glasses for all tasks of daily living, providing a range of focus that laser vision correction cannot achieve. Individuals with visual impairment suffering from cataracts previously had only a mono-focal lens implant option after surgery.

Low Vision


Low vision is defined as vision that is not correctable with spectacles, contact lenses, surgery, or medication.

Low vision can be due to:

  • congenital problems or disorders
  • traumatic injury to the eye or brain
  • systemic diseases
  • adult onset diseases
  • aging related diseases

The eye diseases may cause:

  • a loss of acuity (ability to see detail)
  • loss of peripheral vision or parts of the field of vision
  • constant double vision (diplopia)
  • loss of contrast sensitivity
  • reduced or loss of color vision
  • reduced or loss of depth perception

The low vision services at AVI provide new options for these patients. Each patient is evaluated by an eye doctor who has been specially trained in low vision therapy. A therapy plan and goals are then developed to meet the patient’s individual needs. Low vision therapy focuses on enabling the person with visual impairments to safely and independently complete daily living tasks compromised by vision loss.

Low Vision Therapy Includes:

  • Teaching the person to use remaining vision as efficiently as possible to complete activities.
  • Modifying activities so they can be completed with less vision.
  • Training the person to use adaptive equipment to compensate for vision loss.

Individuals who are experiencing low vision are encouraged to set up a consultation at the Advanced Vision Institute. Please call our office at (757) 229-4000 or click here to schedule an appointment online.
