Low Vision is a term used to describe significant vision impairment that cannot be corrected with glasses, surgery, or medication. According to the National Eye Institute, an estimated 3.5 to 5 million Americans suffer from low vision.
Beyond the more obvious practical limitations of the disability, low vision also can have major emotional and psychological impact on the sufferer. While the condition, by definition, isn’t reversible, medical care, support, and rehabilitation can help patients make the most of their remaining vision and enable them to attain a higher quality of life.
