Ask Our Doctors a Question...

What is “Low Vision”?

The term “low vision” refers to partial sight that cannot be corrected with surgery, drugs, eyeglasses, or contact lenses. The condition can range from having unsatisfactory vision to being nearly blind. The causes of low vision include eye injury, diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and heredity. As a result of reduced visual acuity or decreased contrast sensitivity, low-vision individuals may be unable to fully distinguish colors, see contrasts, or determine spatial relationships among objects. Fortunately, there are a variety of devices and strategies available for helping people with low vision overcome vision loss and live independently.

I have heard the term Low Vision mentioned but I don’t know what it means. Can someone tell me what Low Vision is and who would benefit from it?

“Low vision” is a term we use for patients that have a reduced best corrected vision. In other words, even with the best possible glasses prescription for the patient’s eyes their vision remains less than 20/20. This generally occurs from disease or injury and makes it difficult for the patient to perform everyday tasks, such as reading, being on the computer or watching TV. Low Vision exams are helpful to these patients because we can assess the vision they have and prescribe magnifying glasses and devices that make it easier for the patient to see. Solutions tend to be very different for different people even when they have the same diagnosis and vision! It’s important to take the time to make sure each patient has a personalized exam and is given the best options for them.
