Low vision is considered a loss of eyesight that makes everyday functions more difficult. It cannot be corrected with eyeglasses or contacts (in most cases) and makes it impossible to accomplish normal activities including writing, reading, watching TV or shopping. For some, recognizing faces and colors is difficult as well.
There numerous causes of low vision, but it is commonly caused by disease, such as:
Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Dry Macular Degeneration
While most of these diseases are associated with older individuals, young children can be diagnosed too. Also, low vision can occur because of cancer, brain injury or albinism.
If you have low vision, you cannot see things you normally would see. Reading and writing is difficult and even with corrective lenses, you cannot see as clearly.
Most people who are diagnosed with low vision find it difficult to function at first. But, luckily there are many technologies out there that can help those with low vision function. There are numerous apps available, including those that are offered through Low Vision Technologies.
