What is Low Vision?

Partial vision loss that cannot be corrected is called “low vision." 

Examples of low vision include blind spots, tunnel vision, night blindness or vision that is hazy, blurred or partially obscured. Low vision may be hereditary, the result of an injury or a variety of other causes.

Helping You Cope with Low Vision

People with low vision usually retain some vision. Eye Center specialists help you find solutions and tools to make the best of the vision that is still available to you. Vision aids may include magnifiers, tinted lenses, large-print clocks and remote controls, and a variety of other devices.
