What is Low Vision?

Low vision is a significant visual impairment that cannot be fully corrected with regular glasses, contact lenses, medication, or surgery. People with low vision have a decreased visual acuity or a limited field of vision, impacting their ability to perform everyday tasks. Low vision can result from various eye conditions, including:

  • Macular degeneration
  • Glaucoma
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Cataracts
  • Inherited retinal diseases

Individuals with low vision may experience difficulty with activities such as reading, writing, recognizing faces, watching television, driving, or navigating their surroundings. It's important to note that low vision does not mean complete blindness. People with low vision still have some remaining vision, which can be utilized and enhanced with the help of low-vision experts.

The Importance of a Low-Vision Optometrist

When faced with vision loss, many individuals feel overwhelmed and uncertain about their options. That's where a low-vision optometrist can make a significant difference.
