All About Low Vision
A person is said to have low vision when their eyesight is limited or impaired and cannot be adequately corrected with sugery, conventional glasses or contact lenses.
Low Vision can affect people of all ages and has an impact on many aspects of a person's life, both at home and in the workplace. It may cause problems with reading and using the computer, dialing the telephone, watching TV, recognising faces and daily living activities such as cooking.
Low vision is often a loss of sharpness or acuity but may also present as a loss of field of vision, light sensitivity, distorted vision or a loss of contrast. It may occur as a result of birth defects, injury, a condition or disease.
