Low Vision Tips ImageSeptember Low Vision Tips – Eccentric Viewing

If you suffer from central vision loss, eccentric viewing (also called Preferred Retinal Loci or PRL) techniques might help you increase the use your existing vision. This is a technique that may require training by a low vision rehabilitation specialist and involves having to re-learn your way of seeing. This is done by looking slightly away from what you want to see in order to view it peripherally. You may end up having to look to either side, below or above the object to focus on it clearly. Although this technique will not improve the retina, it can greatly maximize the vision you do have. To read more: click here.

Linda Flemming the lucky winner of the monthly Pebble drawing for July
“I just received my Pebble today and used it to read. Thank you so much for the Pebble. I had no idea all the things it can do. I was so blown away I started crying. I have a condition where someday I will be blind. When I was young I used to have perfect vision. Then as a teenager I needed glasses to see.”
