Low Vision Research

When a person has reduced vision that cannot be made sharp again with ordinary eyeglasses or contact lenses, that person is said to have low vision. Low vision may occur as a result of birth defects, injury, or as a complication of disease (like diabetes or macular degeneration). Both children and adults can have low vision and find difficulty doing everyday tasks. Low vision research aims to find out which interventions are most effective and develop new techniques to improve clinical care and rehabilitation for the sight impaired population.
