What is Low Vision?

Basically, low vision is the term used to describe a visual impairment that can't be corrected fully with glasses or contact lenses. It is having difficulty seeing what you want or need to see even with your best prescription glasses or contact lenses. It could be as basic as not being able to read directions on food packaging or as complex as not seeing well enough to drive. Low vision is not a specific disease, but a problem as to how your vision functions What is Low Vision typically, as the result of an eye disease such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, cataract, etc. or something you are born with such as Nystagmus.


Not your typical eye clinic!

Low vision includes:

  • Loss of best-corrected visual acuity (BVCA) to worse than 20/50 in the better eye, or
  • Decreased contrast sensitivity, or
  • Significant visual field loss. Tunnel vision (lack of vision in the periphery) and blind spots are examples of visual field loss, or
  • Legal blindness. In the United States, legal blindness typically is defined as visual acuity of 20/125 or worse (in the better eye, with the best possible vision correction in place) or a field of view (visual field) that is constricted to 20 degrees or less.
