Chism Low Vision Institute

Your Source for Low Vision Aids & Rehabilitation

Low vision is a condition in which eyesight is reduced, and the individual’s level of functioning vision may be too low to perform many daily tasks with ease. Activities such as reading, watching TV, driving, shopping, and cooking can become difficult and frustrating. Even recognizing the faces of friends and family can be a challenge.

Our low vision eye doctor, Dr. Chism, fits people with low vision with customized aids and devices that maximize remaining vision. Not only do our expert services help people return to doing the things they enjoy, but they also promote living with independence and dignity. With compassion, Dr. Chism travels to six different locations throughout Texas, including Tyler, TX, to help as many people with low vision as possible!

If you have low vision, standard prescription eyewear, surgery, and medication will not be effective. Instead, you need specialized low vision aids – such as telescopic glasses, magnifiers, and computerized devices. Our low vision optometrist will visit you in Tyler, TX, to perform an eye exam and determine the most suitable low vision aids to enhance your quality of life. Chism Low Vision Institute offers you or your loved one the most convenient low vision services possible!
