Low vision Learn more
Low vision describes the condition of individuals who have below-normal vision, even after the most accurate conventional prescription available. They may have been born with low vision, or they may have had their vision impaired by disease or injury. Low vision can include a host of related symptoms, such as an inability to see at night or under low lighting conditions. While low vision cannot be corrected with glasses, optometrists can provide low-vision aids to help individuals best use the remaining vision they have.
