The American Academy of Ophthalmology defines low vision as a "loss of eyesight that makes everyday tasks difficult."
A variety of eye conditions, including macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy can make it difficult to accomplish activities such as navigating within the home, recognizing faces, reading, writing, shopping, watching television or driving a car.
When vision issues cannot be improved with eyeglasses, medicine or surgery, people with low vision need help to learn how to make the most of their remaining sight so they can keep their independence. Losing vision does not mean giving up your activities, but it does mean finding new ways of doing them.
