Devices for partially sighted persons

BY PARTIALLY SIGHTED PERSON, WE UNDERSTAND A PERSON WHOSE VISION CAN NOT BE IMPROVED WITH NORMAL GLASSES, CONTACT LENSES, MEDICATION, OR SURGERY.

Affections such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, advanced glaucoma, optic atrophy, Stargardt’s disease result in a decrease in central visual acuity, specifically the one for details and in classifying those who suffer from these ophthalmologic disorders in the category of partially sighted persons.

Recommended for both adults and children, visual aid devices for the partially sighted persons are intended to try to ease their lives and render them independent in terms of the sense of vision.

The Ama Optimex Eye Clinic offers devices for visual help, which have the principle of increasing and changing the contrast and colors (a text or a picture captured by these devices can be seen magnified a few times).
