Preserve Your Vision For Longer

What Does "Low Vision" Mean?

Low vision refers to vision loss that can’t be corrected with standard glasses, contact lenses or surgery. However, it isn't considered blindness as limited eyesight remains. Symptoms typically include blind spots, poor night vision and blurred vision. Low vision is commonly caused by age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetes.

Fortunately, people with low vision can continue living full and meaningful lives with the help of low vision aids and devices.

I do not usually leave reviews but the people I mention here deserve recognition. My profession & b... usiness is as a Long Haul Truck Driver & my eye sight is extremely important. The Insight staff I came in contact with were all very friendly, knowledgeable, & helpful. When I arrived I was greeted with a smile & professionalism by Pam. She was extremely helpful with the check in process & making sure I knew what my insurance coverage took care of. She then got me set up with Mark, the eye technician. Mark was extremely helpful, he explained each procedure & helped me understand them. He also helped me by explaining what procedures would be not only helpful with my eye exam that day but also which ones would be good for future appointments as a reference to the direction of my eye health. Dr. Paradis is 100% fantastic, he was straight up with me & did not sugarcoat things. I personally think all doctors should be this way. When doing the part of the exam, lens flips as I call it, where they are asking which is clearer he did not rush me & didn't make me feel like it was a problem to let me see them again before deciding. He did not act like a salesman when it came to his recommendations for glasses, he put it out there straight forward. Then Sarah helped me with choosing glasses & what type of lenses to get, she actually listened when I explained what I do for a living. She was very knowledgeable which was a huge relief for me. She brought me what she thought would suit me & indulged my needing to try a few that did not suit my face at all. She then explained the difference in the lenses & what they would do for my eye sight. She did not rush me in making my decision. When I asked both Sarah & Pam their opinions on if the frames looked good on me or not, I very much appreciated their honesty. I would like to thank all of them for making my appointment at Insight Eye Care a delightful experience.
