What Is Low Vision?

When you have low vision, you need more than glasses or contact lenses to see well enough to get around and do day-to-day tasks. Your central or side vision, or both, may be reduced.

What Causes Low Vision?

Low vision can be caused by a number of diseases in the eye. An injury to the eye can also result in low vision. And some people are born with low vision.

What Are the Symptoms?

The symptoms of low vision depend on the cause of the vision loss and where the problem is in the eye. Symptoms can include:

  • Blank spots, dark spots, or wavy lines in the center of your vision

  • Blurred, hazy, or cloudy vision or double vision

  • Loss of side (peripheral) vision or color vision
