Low Vision

People are considered to have “Low vision” when their eyesight cannot be corrected by Ordinary glasses, Contact lenses, medication, Laser treatment or surgery. However, they can enhance their ability to accomplish tasks with the use of compensatory visual strategies, low vision and other devices, and environmental modifications. Low Vision is a loss of visual function (i.e. Visual acuity, visual fields and/or contrast sensitivityǼ caused by an organic or non-organic mechanism resulting in a loss of functional ability and quality of life. Common conditions that result in low vision include cataracts, stroke, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and retinal detachment
