What Is Low Vision?

Low vision is a condition characterized by a decreased quality of sight that cannot be corrected with glasses, contacts, or surgery.

Although people with low vision may be considered legally blind, they still maintain some degree of vision. The following eye diseases and conditions are known to cause low vision:

  • Glaucoma
  • Age-related macular degeneration
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Retinal detachment

How Can We Help?

Low vision affects people in different ways. For example, a person may have difficulty with detail, such as reading or seeing faces. Others may have difficulty navigating unfamiliar places due to loss of peripheral vision.

The main goal of low vision care is to maximize the remaining vision that a person has. This may involve the prescribing of glasses or other assistive devices designed for vision loss.

By taking an in-depth look at the issues affecting vision, as well as identifying visual goals, we can develop strategies suited to the individual that will help improve quality of life.
