Low vision is the loss of sight that is not correctable with prescription eyeglasses, contact lenses,or surgery. Low vision does not include complete blindness because there is still some sight. Often low vision can be improved with the use of visual aids.
Low vision includes different degrees of sight loss from having blind spots, poor night vision, and problems with glare to almost a complete loss of sight. The American Optometric Association divides low vision into two categories based on the vision in the best eye:
  1. Partially sighted, meaning the person has visual acuity between 20/70 and 20/200 with conventional prescription lenses.
  2. Legally blind, meaning the person has visual acuity no better than 20/200 with conventional correction and/or a restricted field of vision less than 20 degrees wide.

Anyone can experience low vision because it results from a variety of conditions and injuries. Because of age-related disorders like macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts,low vision is more common in adults over age 45 and still even more common in adults over age 75. One in six adults over age 45 have low vision; One in four adults over age 75 have low vision.


The most common types of low vision include:

  • Loss of central vision. A condition in which a blind spot in the center of one's vision
  • Loss of peripheral (side) vision. Inability to see anything to either side, above, or below eye level. Central vision, however remains intact.
  • Night blindness. The inability to see in poorly lit areas such as a theater, as well as outside at night
  • Blurred vision. A condition in which objects both near and far appear out of focus
  • Hazy vision. A condition in which the entire field of vision appears to be covered with a film or glare

Vision rehabilitation teaches a person with low vision how to accomplish everyday tasks, how to use new devices like video magnifiers and talking watches, and confidence in handling this impairment. The first step should be visiting an eye practitioner who specializes in low vision care and who can determine the state of low vision. Your practitioner can also prescribe certain devices and give advice dependent on your lifestyle. These devices can help you read better, allow you to identify objects, and even read to you.
