Low vision can impact a person's ability to live independently and
complete activities of daily living. The number of people living with
visual impairment is expected to nearly double by 2030.
The National Eye Institute
has tips on how to recognize if the problem truly is low vision, which
cannot be corrected by glasses, medication or surgery.
In Low Vision Awareness Month, people who suspect low vision in themselves
or a loved one are encouraged to visit their doctor to learn more.
