What is Low Vision

Updated: Mar 19

Low vision is vision loss that cannot be corrected by medical or surgical treatments or conventional eyeglasses. A person with low vision must learn to adjust to it. Getting help to work through the anger and frustration with knowing that your vision loss is not correctable and learning about vision rehabilitation strategies will help you stay active and avoid depression.

There may be one or more causes of low vision. These are usually the result of disorders or injuries affecting the eye or a condition such as diabetes that affects the entire body. Some of the most common causes of low vision include age-related macular degeneration, diabetes, and glaucoma. Low vision may also result from cancer of the eye, albinism, brain injury, or inherited eye disorders, including retinitis pigmentosa.
