Dr. Pratt specializes in low vision with particular interest and skill in working with individuals with macular degeneration. His dissertation research focused on helping patients with central blind areas to read. His knowledge in this area helps him to train patients to utilize their remaining vision.
Dr. Pratt will work with you to identify your visual goals and determine what assistive devices may help you. He will train you to use these devices and your remaining vision to accomplish your goals.
At your first low vision appointment, you should bring any assistive devices such as magnifiers that you are currently using. You should think about what tasks you are struggling with that you would like help with. When setting up your appointment, you will need the contact information for your current eye doctor so we can request your medical records. If you have not had an eye exam within the last six months, you will need to schedule a medical eye exam with your current eye doctor or Dr. Pratt to evaluate your eye health prior to your low vision examination.
In addition, our own Dr. Pratt has authored numerous publications regarding the subject.
