Joseph's vision with his glasses was 20/60 on the day of his low vision evaluation. He was not doing badly for distance vision. It was the reading that bothered him. The thorough low vision evaluation revealed that his near vision could be improved nicely with telemicroscopic glasses. The ones that I prescribed magnified almost 2 times and focused at 10 inches from his face. He could easily read the Times.
Today, Joseph called to tell me how well he is doing and how much he likes the glasses. "I can read for hours with them" he told me. "I love them".

I am pleased that Joseph has been able to get back to reading the Times. It is very satisfying to be able to help people return to activities that they enjoy but had been unable to do. #maculardegeneration #microscopicglasses
