What’s Low Vision?

Age changes everything, our vision too. Many of such changes in vision can be corrected using glasses or contact lenses. However, sometimes these ordinary prescription lenses, surgery or medical treatment fail to compensate for your loss of vision, though you’re still left with some usable vision. If that’s the case, this is what’s referred as “low vision”.

When you have low vision, performing your daily chores becomes an uphill task despite using regular medication, glasses or contact lenses and you struggle with things like preparing meals, shopping, reading and replying your mails, and even signing your name.

Low vision affects the lives of around 14 million people in the U.S. People who are 65 or older, African Americans and Hispanics 45 years or older share an increased likelihood of suffering from low vision due to glaucoma and diabetes.

Types of Low Vision

There can be many, and the most common of them include:

  • When Central Vision is Affected

    A condition with your vision having a blind spot in the center of your visual field.

  • When Peripheral Vision is Affected

    Also known as “peripheral vision loss”, this is a low vision condition, which leaves you unable to see anything to either side, above or below your eye level, though your central vision remains unaffected.

  • Night Blindness

    Also known as “Nyctalopia”, this type of low vision affects your ability to see well in dark or lowly lit places like movie theatres.

  • Blurred Vision

    A condition due to which things don’t look sharp and clear to you, both nearby and far off objects get out of focus.

  • Hazy Vision

    A condition which makes your entire visual field wrapped within a film or glare.

What Causes Low Vision?

There can be a host of reasons, which can hamper your ability to see the world around you clearly and sharply. For instance, low vision in older people can result from specific eye diseases like macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and even from stroke. Low vision can affect both your central field of vision as well as peripheral vision.

How to Deal with Low Vision?

It is very important to realize the difference between low vision and blindness; for instance, having a blind spot (or blank spot) in the center of your visual field doesn’t mean you’re blind. It only reflects that your ability to read, write or recognize people’s faces has been affected to a certain degree. Nevertheless, there are treatments and methods that can help you go around with it.

So, make sure you seek advice from a professional ophthalmologist as soon as you notice any irregularities with your vision, and one of the best ways is to stick to your regular eye exam. This will help your eye doctor keep a good track of your eye health and identifying any probable point of concern well in time.
