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.

Low vision is a functional vision problem typically the result of eye disease such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, cataract, etc. or something you are born with such as Nystagmus.
