Low Vision Service

Low Vision Service at Bascom Palmer

Low Vision means that even with regular eyeglasses, contact lenses, medicine or surgery, your vision is interfering with daily activities such as reading, cooking, reading labels, or watching television.

Bascom Palmer’s Low Vision Services will work with you on new ways to perform those activities. Many people with low vision are taking charge by using optical and other low vision devices that can help them keep their independence. These include special high-powered eyeglasses with built-in magnification; telescopes, either handheld or built into your eyeglasses; or magnifiers, either handheld or on a stand, with or without a built-in light.

Low Vision Support Group at Bascom Palmer

Join us the 3rd Friday of each month beginning Friday, February 16, 2024, from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Stanley Glaser Board Room (2nd Floor) to participate in Bascom Palmer Eye Institute’s low vision support group where you will feel a sense of connection, and receive information, resources, and tools to navigate life with a visual impairment. Our sessions feature special presentations by experienced clinicians and guest speakers.
