Your Community Eye Care Clinic, We Know You!
Welcome to Wendy Waguespack, OD in Baton Rouge, LA
Ensuring crisp and clear vision is only one part of first-rate eye care. In addition to testing visual acuity, our eye doctors focus on the comprehensive and long-term health of your eyes and vision. Using the latest in optometric technology such as digital imaging, in our Baton Rouge office, we will inspect your eyes thoroughly with a comprehensive eye and vision assessment.
Our optometric experts stay up to date with the rapid progress of medicine and technology, so you benefit from precise diagnoses and optimal treatments. Many common eye diseases, such as macular degeneration, cataracts and glaucoma, do not present symptoms until a late stage. For early detection and effective medical treatment of eye disease, visit our highly qualified and skilled eye doctors regularly for a comprehensive eye exam.
My appointment was on time and I felt very safe with the sanitation, masks and distancing from other patients. All of my questions were answered and my exam was very thorough. The office staff were friendly and efficient. Dr. Waguespack is the best in dealing with all eye issues.
Low vision describes a set of conditions in which there is significant visual impairment which can not be corrected with traditional means such as glasses, contact lenses, medication or eye surgery. Low vision includes a loss of visual acuity which can’t be corrected to better than 20/70, significant visual field loss such as tunnel vision or blind spots, legal blindness (20/200 or less visual acuity in the better eye) and almost total blindness.
Low vision is a condition that the elderly suffer from, although it is possible for children and middle-aged patients to have low vision. After a life of seeing normally, losing your vision can be hard, or even traumatic, and can potentially lead to frustration, or even depression.
Computer use is one activity that often requires assistance and the good news is the technology to aid computer users with low vision is always improving. Today there are many low vision aids available on the market to help those with low vision to function independently in performing daily tasks.
