Xtreme Optics provides all your low vision products and services, including high prismatic lenses, split prism lenses and prism inserts with options from a full array of AR coatings, wrapped frames, sunglasses and more. We make each low vision lens to the individuals patient’s specification, employing the skill and creativity necessary to create difficult prism cuts while finding innovative ways to make the finished product as attractive and practical as possible. Our low vision lenses typically fall into the following three areas:
Prisms for Hemianopia
Prisms for Double Vision
Our optic lab specializes in low vision and prismatic lenses for such optical consequences as hemianopia and cranial nerve palsy. In cases of hemianopia, trauma to the brain from a stroke or other injury causes a patient to experience an extensive loss of vision in either one eye or both eyes, while cranial nerve palsy can create a double vision effect. In both cases as well as other low vision consequences, custom made specialty low vision lenses can provide real relief and positive results in the vision and lives of the patients affected.
Founder and president Joe Nelson has worked for more than 30 years in optical labs and was instrumental in the development of the first low vision REKINDLE™ and Prism Maker lenses for low vision patients. Joe works hand-in-hand with practitioners and researchers to develop creative solutions to the most challenging of designs. His experience and technique are invaluable to optician practitioners searching for the best options and real solutions for their low vision clients.
