Every day patients in our office and on the phone ask us, “Why didn’t my doctor tell me that low vision care is available?” “Why didn’t my doctor tell me about you?” We hear it so much that we started asking ourselves the same question. Why aren’t doctors referring their patients for low vision care? That’s when we decided it was time to empower our patients to spread the word about the opportunities for enhanced sight that low vision care offers. That is when we launched Low Vision U.
Many people just like you have been told that nothing more can be done to address their low vision. Now is the time to tell the world that help is available and that it is possible to see the faces of your loved ones again. You can become a Low Vision U Ambassador and help spread the word about low vision care.
If you are the caregiver of someone with low vision, you too can become a Low Vision U Ambassador. As you advocate for your loved one to receive the best care possible, it will be important that you insist that his or her physician refer them for low vision care.
