It is the third most commonly occurring impairment among people 70 and above.

Low vision impedes many of your daily living activities such as:

  • Driving
  • Reading

  • Maintaining a checkbook
  • Distinguishing among medications

  • Financial management
  • Medication management
  • Scanning your environment

A variety of disorders may cause Low vision (most are age related):

  • Macular degeneration
