What is low vision?
Low vision means having impaired vision that can’t be fully corrected with regular eyeglasses, contact lenses, medication, or surgery. This can be caused by a wide range of factors, such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and cataracts. Symptoms of low vision can include difficulty seeing objects clearly, sensitivity to light, and difficulty distinguishing colors.
Our eye doctors can diagnose low vision during an eye exam.
