What is Low Vision?

 

Low vision is an eyesight condition which causes a person to be unable to accomplish daily tasks due to sight impairments. Low vision occurs when an individual struggles with any of the following common activities:

  • Reading
  • Personal Grooming
  • Viewing Pictures
  • Recognizing faces

Individuals with low vision are unable to have their sight corrected with regular glasses, contact lenses, medicine, or surgery. Millions of Americans experience a normal loss of vision as they get older. However, the number of individuals who develop vision problems due to health conditions is projected to continue to rise.

Many things can cause low vision, including:


  • Macular degeneration
  • Cataracts
  • Diabetes
  • Glaucoma
  • Injury to the eye
  • Birth defect

Is There a Low Vision Cure?

It is uncommon and rare to restore—in its entirety—vision that is lost. Vision specialists can determine whether the loss of vision experienced is normal due to aging, or if it is caused by other sources such as eye disease. A vision specialist can also help to determine if a vision rehabilitation program will be able to help an individual with low vision.

Technology is advancing to meet the growing needs of people with low vision impairments.
