Date:5/10/2013

FARMINGTON, Conn., May 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Dr. Randolph C.

Macular degeneration is a common, incurable and potentially devastating disease.  It is the leading cause of permanent vision loss and low vision for seniors.  "Low Vision" is the term used to describe vision loss that cannot be corrected with regular glasses, surgery or medication. 

The guide discusses macular degeneration, low vision treatment and how magnification benefits people suffering from macular degeneration.  The book highlights advanced optic eyeglasses.  It is written in high-contrast large print and contains numerous photographs of patients wearing their low vision glasses.

Unfortunately many people are unfamiliar with low vision treatment options. "Patients come to me all the time asking why their doctor did not make the recommendation for these special glasses or other low vision aids," Dr. Kinkade said.  "They are frustrated with their reduced level of vision and how it has hindered what they want to see and do."

For reading and writing there are Prismatic Magnifying Spectacles (PMSs), Spectacle Miniature Telescopes (SMTs) and ClearImage II Reading Microscopes.  They provide higher magnification than regular eyeglasses, often making reading easier.   They do make things better, but they cannot make things perfect warns Dr. Kinkade.
