L.S., a 55 year old male of asian ethnicity was referred to low vision by a fellow optometrist. He had a minor stroke which resulted in his drivers license being suspended. The loss of independence made life extremely difficult for this independent business owner. Low Vision & The Suspended Drivers License RESULTS The obvious solution was bioptic telescopic glasses. However, his lack of an anatomical nasal bridge made the fitting of the telescope a real challenge.
