Low Vision and Eye Disease

Low vision is an eye condition in which severe vision loss makes it difficult or impossible to perform everyday tasks such as driving, reading, writing, or watching television. It can affect people of all ages, and cannot be corrected by surgery or medication, or by using normal vision correction methods, like glasses or contact lenses.

Common Eye Diseases That May Cause Low Vision

Though low vision can happen at any age, people over 60 are at the highest risk. This is because many eye diseases that are linked to low vision are most common in this age group. These eye diseases and conditions include:

  • Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
  • Cataracts
  • Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Glaucoma
