What is Low Vision ?
Low vision is impaired vision that cannot be fully restored by conventional glasses, contact lenses, medical treatment, or surgery. Low vision is not total blindness. People with low vision have potentially useful vision.Over 4 million Americans have low vision. Sixty-eight percent of these people are over the age of 65. Six percent of people age 65 to 74 have low vision, 12 percent of those age 75 to 84, and 21 percent of those over age 85. Most people with low vision can become more visually independent if they make a commitment to learn how to use low vision aids and devices, as well as learn new methods to perform everyday tasks.
