Low Vision Examinations
The Lions Center for the Blind & UC Berkeley School of Optometry are now offering Low Vision Examinations at the Lions Center office (address below).
What is a low vision Exam?
A low vision exam is a comprehensive eye exam by an Ophthalmologist specializing in low vision. Exams are designed to evaluate your functional vision and limitations. The doctor will prescribe aids or training that will improve your ability to see and help you adjust to vision loss.
How do I know if this clinic is right for me?
If the best vision you can attain with glasses or contacts is limited by disease or injury and is inhibiting you from performing typical everyday tasks or activities, such as reading, then this clinic might be of assistance. If you are unsure, ask your eye doctor if a Low Vision Examination could be of help.
Lions Center Office
Appointments are available on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 9:00 am, 10:30 am, 1:00 pm, 2:30 pm.
For questions and registration please call (510) 450-1580 extension 221
