Low Vision Assistance For Reading, Driving, and Other Tasks


Daily Tasks Such as Driving, Reading, Watching TV and More Affected by Low Vision

How Your IALVS Eye Doctor Can Help

Low Vision is most common among the older population. This is because they are at greater risk of developing eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration, which are some of the most common causes of the condition.

Exactly what degree of vision loss is considered Low Vision is a matter of some debate. Some consider it to be less than 20/40 vision, while others consider it to be less than 20/70 vision. Whatever the exact number may be, we believe that simply being unable do the things you want to do because of a vision impairment is enough of a reason to visit a Low Vision optometrist.

The types of daily tasks that Low Vision patients usually have difficulty with includes:

  • Driving
  • Reading
  • Recognizing faces
  • Socializing independently
  • Using a computer
  • Watching TV
  • Writing

Suddenly experiencing difficulty with everyday things can be a painful ordeal. A sudden loss of independence means that Low Vision not only robs the patient of functional capability, it also leaves them feeling mentally and emotionally devastated and possibly, a burden to their loved ones.
