At Complete Low Vision Care in Round Rock, TX, we offer a variety of low-vision devices to cater to your individual vision needs and goals. During your low-vision evaluation, we will demonstrate different types of low-vision aids to determine the proper power and equipment that you require.
Our occupational therapist will arrange a follow-up visit with you to ensure that you are trained in the use of the devices that we recommend. These low-vision aids act as a prosthetic for your eye, and we want you to be trained properly to ensure success.
Our handheld magnifiers are a great option for short, quick viewing tasks such as reading grocery labels or menus. They come in a variety of powers and styles, and we usually recommend the ones with built-in lights. Our prescription-strength magnifiers are much stronger than those found in local bookstores or online. While most people tend to ask for the strongest magnifier we offer, that may not be the best option, because as the power of the magnifier increases, the field of view decreases and a smaller field of view makes it harder to read.
Stand magnifiers sit directly on a flat surface and are great for those who have difficulty holding a magnifier due to arthritis or a tremor. They come in different shapes and sizes and may have illumination.
Pocket magnifiers are compact and affordable, fitting easily into a pocket or purse. They are great for quick spotting tasks on the go but are not ideal for longer reading tasks.
Video magnifiers are the best option when higher levels of magnification are needed. They use a camera and video screen to allow for ranges from 3 times to over 50 times magnification and can adjust contrast and brightness for easier reading. Desktop and portable handheld versions are available, some with optical character recognition (OCR) capabilities to scan and read to you.
Telescopes are used for seeing at a distance. For instance, if you have trouble seeing aisle names and numbers in the grocery store, this device will help you.
We can also mount telescopes into glasses for hands-free viewing. When telescopes are mounted into eyeglasses, the design is called bioptics. Bioptic telescopes can be prescribed for one or both eyes and are attached to regular eyeglasses. These telescopes function like binoculars, magnifying images and making them appear larger, thus making it easier to see.
We also offer OrCam MyEye, a lightweight wearable camera that attaches to any pair of glasses.
It uses artificial intelligence technology to read printed text aloud from any surface and can recognize faces, product labels, money, colors, and more.
