Doctor Writes Guide for Macular Degeneration Eyeglasses
Date:5/10/2013

in the distance (10 feet and beyond), like watching television, driving and seeing people's faces, new E-Scoop Glasses and Spectacle Miniature Telescopes (SMTs) are available.  SMTs for distance viewing are available in full-diameter and bioptic designs.

"No pair of eyeglasses can eliminate developing blind spots created by macular degeneration, but they do make things larger,  giving you a better chance of seeing and reading," Dr. Kinkade said.

The Implantable Miniature Telescope (IMT) is another new treatment option for people with advanced stable macular degeneration and is discussed in the book.  Dr. Kinkade is part of the first treatment team in Connecticut to offer this technology and has been recently interviewed on WFSB and WTNH television.

The book also discusses the benefits of Electronic Magnification Aids.  "With electronic magnification we can make words very large and improve contrast for easier reading," reports Dr. Kinkade.  "We can even improve the patient's ability to write checks and view photographs."

Lighting techniques are described in the book to help in the use of low vision glasses.  People now have options like halogen, neodymium, fluorescent or LED lighting to help with reading.  Swing-arm and gooseneck lamps with a swivel reflector shade allow the light to be aimed properly.

"I know these glasses get people to see better, Dr. Kinkade said.  "How much better depends on the person's level of vision, what needs to be seen, and the person's ability to adapt to new ways of seeing."

Dr. Kinkade is available for a free telephone consultation to see if you or someone you know is a candidate for specialized low vision eyeglasses.  Additional information is available at http://www.LowVisionEyeglasses.com
