Low Vision is a subspecialty within the professions of optometry and ophthalmology dealing with individuals who have less than normal vision even with the most accurate conventional prescription available. It can be a result of either congenital or acquired factors.
 
 
Low Vision Lifestyle
 
When you have low vision, you need more than glasses or contacts lenses to see well enough to get around and perform day-to-day tasks. Your central or side vision, or both, may be reduced. Your vision can’t be corrected with surgery. But with the help of vision aids, you can stay independent.
 
 
What Causes Low Vision?
 
Low vision can be caused by a number of eye diseases. An injury to the eye can also result in low vision. And some people are born with low vision.
 
 
Low Vision Symptoms
 
The symtoms of low vision depend on the cause of the vision loss and where the problem is in the eye. Symptoms can include:
  • Blank spots, dark spots, or wavy lines in the center of your vision.
  • Blurred, hazy, or cloudy vision or double vision.
  • Loss of side (peripheral) vision or color vision.
