Date:9/10/2013

LITCHFIELD, Conn., Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Dr. Randolph Kinkade, Connecticut optometrist and founding member of the International Academy of Low Vision Specialists, announces the expanded version of Guide for Macular Degeneration Eyeglasses: Low Vision Treatment.

The book contains over 150 patient photographs demonstrating macular degeneration low vision glasses.  New chapters and updates show practical and unique eyeglass designs.  Vision enhancing techniques are also discussed.

The book has been written for those suffering from macular degeneration and their doctors.  "The biggest challenge for helping people is they have no idea these special glasses exist", said Dr. Kinkade. 

For reading and writing there are Prismatic Magnifying Readers (PMRs), Spectacle Miniature Telescopes (SMTs) and ClearImage II Reading Microscopes.  They provide higher magnification than regular eyeglasses, often making reading easier.

A person is considered to have "low vision" when they experience a reduction in eyesight that cannot be corrected by regular glasses, surgery or medication.  Unless treated, low vision interferes with the many visually-guided tasks we perform every day.  

For seeing  better in the distance (5 feet and beyond), like watching television, driving and seeing people's faces, new E-Scoop Glasses and Spectacle Miniature Telescopes (SMTs) are available.
