What Is Low Vision?

Low vision is a loss of vision that cannot be corrected by eyeglasses, contact lenses or eye surgery. Generally, you are considered to have low vision if your visual acuity is at 20/70 or worse in the better-seeing eye. It is not blindness, because the individual can still see to some extent, but the vision is impaired enough to affect the ability to perform everyday tasks. An individual with low vision may experience some limitation in their ability to work, engage in recreational activities or drive, which may require the use of visual aids or supportive services for everyday life.

Why Is Low Vision Care Important?

Low vision is a difficult problem because the options for treatment may have been exhausted, and adjusting to limitations in visual abilities and diminished independence can be challenging. However, your Meridian optometrist can provide careful monitoring of your remaining vision and advice about vision aides and lifestyle changes that can help you to maximize your ability to see for ordinary tasks needed for daily living. This is why regular visits to your optometry professional are important for managing low vision.

Tips For Keeping Your Vision Healthy

Vision experts recommend a number of tips for keeping eyes healthy. You should know your family history on eye health. Eat healthy foods and maintain your weight, to prevent health problems that can affect your vision. Don’t smoke, and if you smoke, talk to your doctor about ways to quit. Always wear protective eyewear when doing construction tasks or when working with chemicals. Protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays whenever you are outdoors. Get regular eye exams that include dilation to look at the internal structures of your eyes. This measure will help to find eye problems in the early stages when they can be treated most successfully.
