Mary has “rod achromatopsia.” This is a congenital condition characterized by a partial or total absence of color vision. It also involves other problems with vision, including increased sensitivity to light and glare, involuntary back-and-forth eye movements (nystagmus), and significantly reduced sharpness of vision.
Mary was sent to Dr. Long through Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation Services to meet some vision-related goals. After a thorough low vision evaluation, Dr. Long prescribed bioptic telescopic glasses, prismatic reading glasses, a “Ruby” electronic magnifier, and specially-tinted regular glasses and sunglasses.
“My association with the low vision department at Long Family Eye Care has always been a positive and helpful experience. My most recent visits introduced me to visual aids and glasses that have enabled me to function at the highest level possible with my visual impairment. The extra time Dr. Jarrod Long and Casey spent with me was informative, kind, and life-changing. Without question, the most current information and low vision assistance available.”
