Minneapolis, MN – Dr. Chris Palmer, a low vision optometrist, founder of Low Vision Restoration, LLC, and fellow of the International Academy of Low Vision Specialists (IALVS), provides cutting edge, low vision services, and devices to patients in Minnesota and the Upper Midwest. He is committed to making 2020 the year of vision for people suffering from vision loss.
Dr. Palmer offers free low vision phone consultations to patients in Minnesota and the Upper Midwest. In the consultations, Dr. Palmer assesses the patient’s individual diagnosis and needs and lets them know what to expect during a low vision device evaluation. Known for his personalized approach and specialized standards of care, Dr. Palmer has helped patients improve their vision and ability to be active and independent, even when they’ve been told nothing more can be done.
Dr. Palmer enhances the vision a patient has so they can get back to doing the things they love like driving, recognizing faces, reading, watching television, so that they can continue to be able to fully participate in life. He works with patients whose vision has been impaired due to a wide range of conditions including macular degeneration, diabetes retinitis pigmentosa, glaucoma, Stargardt’s disease, albinism, cataracts, among other vision-limiting diseases. Dr. Palmer is directly improving vision and lives.
“We care about our patients and do everything we can to provide the high-quality enhancements they need to do the activities they enjoy,” says Dr. Chris Palmer. “We try and find some way of helping our patients, no matter how significant their eyesight problems may be or what the patient’s previous practitioner may have told them. With our specialized care and low vision devices, many vision-limiting diseases can be addressed to improve the quality of life.”
An active participant in national awareness and safety initiatives, Dr. Palmer proudly supports January’s National Glaucoma Awareness Month, to raise public awareness about the “sneak thief of sight” targeting more than two million Americans, February’s AMD/Low Vision Awareness Month, to raise public awareness for age-related macular degeneration, and March’s Save Your Vision Month, to remind Americans of the value of vision and the importance of maintaining good eye health by regularly visiting an eye care professional. Dr. Palmer supports many other national initiatives throughout the year, including Women’s Eye Health Month, Ultraviolet Awareness Month, Healthy Vision Month, Cataract Awareness Month, and Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month.
