Low Vision Assessments
For patients who have difficulty reading or navigating their way around due to advanced eye disease, Dr. Calotti performs a very detailed and specific visual assessment to determine the patient's visual potential. That potential may be optimized to enhance the patient's daily activities and improve the quality of life through a variety of visual aids. This is an OHIP covered exam that can determine a patient's eligibility for coverage through the assistive devices program.
Assistive Devices Program (ADP)
This program was put in place by the Ontario Ministry of Health to assist in providing visual aids to qualified patients at a subsidized cost. The program can cover up to 80% of the cost of an eligible visual aid such as special magnifiers, spectacles or electronic devices. Dr. Calotti is an ADP licensed ophthalmologist. To determine which devices that you are eligible for we ask you to sign a relase of information about previous funding form and send it to the assistive devices program on your behalf prior to your appointment with Dr. Calotti. You can download a copy of the form here.
Some Eligible Devices Include:
- Magnifiers, Telescopes, Binoculars
- Specialized glasses, specialized lenses
- Spectacle-mounted low vision and field enhancement aids
