If you are legally blind, visually impaired, or otherwise dealing with low vision, a low vision evaluation can help.
When glasses don’t provide the vision you need for day-to-day life, it is time for a low vision evaluation. Our optometrists will work with you to understand your vision needs and provide meaningful tools to help improve your quality of life.
A low vision evaluation is different from an eye exam. It is not a medical evaluation; instead, a low vision evaluation focuses specifically on you and your visual needs.

Dr. Lisa Chiles is our optometrist who works with all of our low vision patients. She is residency trained in vision rehabilitation and has been working in low vision for more than 20 years. Here in Arizona, she has been supporting the visually impaired community in Phoenix for over 14 years. Dr. Chiles is also an adjunct faculty member at the Low Vision Clinic at Midwestern University.
We would love to meet you. Our office is conveniently located in the Grand Avenue Professional Plaza.
