Low Vision is a bilateral damage to one’s vision that drastically impairs a patient’s ability to function and can’t be effectively fixed with surgical, medical, conventional eyewear or contact lenses. Low vision may occur due to birth defects, injuries, the natural aging process or as a side effect of the disease.
Many patients with low vision wear glasses or contact lenses and find everyday tasks difficult. Struggling to read & write, or use the computer, shopping and even watching TV become challenging. People over the age of 65 are at increased risk of developing low vision. Older patients should visit the Ophthalmologist regularly so that the doctor can watch for changes and is able to identify the difference between normal changes in the aging eye and those caused by eye diseases.
Low vision is a loss of sight that makes everyday life challenging. Anyone can suffer from low vision, but people over the age of 65 are the most commonly affected. Many eye conditions like macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy. can cause low vision.
