Ask about vision rehabilitation, even if your eye care professional says, “nothing more can be done for your vision.”
Approximately 88% of people classified as legally blind have some useful vision but have low vision.
“Low vision” refers to a loss of vision which cannot be corrected by medical or surgical procedures. Although medication, surgery, or conventional eyeglasses may help, they do not fully restore one’s vision. Low vision is determined by acuity, the amount of detail an individual sees, or by visual field, the area in which an individual can see objects.
