IALVS Doctor of the Month

Dr. Shaun Golemba

My team and I provide customized solutions to everyday visual challenges to enhance each and every patient’s life. Seven years ago, I decided to expand my education and join the IALVS to be able to care for patients who have experienced vision loss.

What is Low Vision?

Common eye diseases include macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, retinitis pigmentosa, cataracts, and Stroke-Hemianopsia. People with Low Vision tend to have reduced visual acuity or a reduced field of view. It affects their ability to easily enjoy everyday activities, such as cooking, reading, driving, using a computer, or watching TV. The condition cannot be 100% corrected by wearing glasses or contact lenses, by undergoing a surgical procedure, or by taking prescription medications.

Several Low Vision Treatments

Low Vision care is a unique method of care because it considers your personal life and favorite activities, not only the extent of your visual difficulties. Low Vision specialists work closely with each patient to determine the best visual aids and devices to improve their quality of life.

Your Lifestyle Is Our Priority

People with low vision have a diminished ability to engage in their daily tasks, whether around the house or elsewhere. It is our mission to ensure that those with low vision remain independent and do the things they love and enjoy. We are driven to improve your remaining vision with customized vision aids and devices. Regain your independence and do the things you love by booking an appointment with one of our low vision eye doctors today!

I had a great experience.

I was able to get a last-minute appointment even with a long waiting list. The team at the reception was really friendly and helpful. The technicians and the eye doctor really take the time to explain to you every detail of the exam. Overall, I had a great first impression! ~
