What is low vision?

Low vision is a visual impairment that can’t be fixed with glasses, contact lenses, medication, or surgery. People with low vision may have difficulty seeing objects up close or far away, frequently bump into things, or have trouble recognizing faces. Daily life can be challenging for those with low vision. Simple tasks such as reading a book, watching TV, using a computer, cooking, or driving can become more difficult. At Accent Vision Care, we specialize in helping patients with low vision maximize their remaining sight and maintain independence.
