Low Vision Associates was founded in 1986 by Dr. William B. Kayen to help people with low vision problems. For many years we were located in the Empire State Building in midtown Manhattan and then moved across the street to 347 Fifth Avenue. We are now located 35 minutes away in Valley Steam, NY.
Since our beginning, we have treated thousands of patients. Even many low vision patents who were told by other doctors that "they could do nothing more to help them" have been helped here.
Low Vision Associates specializes in fitting the latest low vision glasses and contact lenses including bioptic telescopic lenses and microscopic lenses, filtered lenses, high powered and prismatic lenses which all may be helpful for many conditions.
