What is Low Vision and Low Vision Care?
People who have vision loss are said to be visually impaired or to have Low Vision and their vision loss is usually caused by an underlying eye disease such as Age-related Macular Degeneration(AMD), Diabetic Retinopathy, Glaucoma, Cataracts, or other eye diseases and conditions.
Those with Low Vision typically have difficulty reading, writing, watching television, recognizing people's faces or engaging in other daily living tasks. Fortunately, the visually impaired can be helped with a service called Low Vision Care.
Low Vision Care is professional care provided by an ophthalmologist, optometrist, optician or a vision rehabilitation professional who specializes in helping visually impaired patients maximize their remaining vision. This care usually involves an evaluation and the use of solutions called low vision aids that include both magnification devices such as magnifiers and non-optical products such as task lighting.
