my mom is 88 years old she is blind in one eye and is now losing her sight in the other. is there any thing i can do for this

pippistrellodaqua :

I am happy to help you today.


pippistrellodaqua :

What is the reason for her vision loss? Glaucoma? Macular Degeneration?


pippistrellodaqua :

The most important thing you can do is try to treat the condition that is claiming her vision.


pippistrellodaqua :

At some point, the damage may be beyond repair. If this is the case I strongly recommend a "low vision consult."


pippistrellodaqua :

Low vision examinations focus on using the remaining vision to the fullest. There are low vision devices such as magnifiers, special glasses, reading lamps, and even computer programs which can help patients with permanent vision loss to manage life in a respectful and more

full way.

pippistrellodaqua :

I will be available to answer any follow-up questions you may have.
