Understanding Low Vision

Low vision is a reduced level of vision that cannot be fully corrected with conventional glasses, contact lenses, medicine or surgery. Generally speaking, low vision is insufficient vision to complete everyday tasks. It is defined in clinical terms as having central visual acuity of 20/70 or worse in the better eye with the best possible correction. Common examples of eye diseases that cause low vision include cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration, among others.
