For those who suffer from low vision, traditional corrective devices such as glasses and contact lenses offer little or no help. The low vision team at the Storm Eye Institute at MUSC Health uses state-of-the-art technology and equipment to help patients regain some of the independence in their daily activities lowered vision can affect.
Made possible through a gift from Stanley and Theodora Feldberg, the Storm Eye Institute is able to provide service to address one of the more prevalent health problems facing Americans — low vision. As long-time patients and benefactors of the Storm Eye Institute, the Feldbergs' generosity has allowed our specialists to provide the latest and most advanced treatment options for low-vision patients.
After a comprehensive assessment, our team of experts will discuss which treatment options are most appropriate and establish a plan that will maximize the long-term benefits and effectiveness of treatment. Using a variety of services and devices such as special lenses, magnifiers, video and computer-assisted technology, and electro-optical displays, we are committed to helping you use available therapies and resources to achieve the best vision you possibly can.
The Storm Eye Institute team of vision specialists includes ophthalmologists, optometrists, nurses, occupational therapists, and social workers. With the current technology and the broadest range of diagnostic equipment and devices available in South Carolina, visual tasks once believed to be impossible become a reality.
