What are Low Vision Devices?

Low vision devices are optical or electronic devices used by people with Vision impairment to enhance their visual function. These devices comprise of video magnifiers, computer-related devices, audio devices, and head-worn devices. They are used to help people with their daily activities.

 Low vision is a condition of visual impairment that affects a person’s ability to see clearly even with glasses or contact lenses. It can be caused by eye disorders and illnesses such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. A cataract is a clouding of the eye lens that reduces visual sharpness. Macular degeneration is the deterioration of the central area of the retina responsible for detail vision. Glaucoma refers to a diverse group of eye diseases resulting in irreversible damage to the optic nerve caused by increased pressure in the eye. Diabetic retinopathy occurs in people with advanced or long-term diabetes, and is caused by leaking blood vessels that damage the entire retina.

Poor vision is a state of visual impairment that cannot be cured with contact lenses, glasses, drugs, or eye surgery.  Low vision optical devices includes a wide range of useful visual 4devices, such as stand and hand-held magnifiers, powerful magnifying reading glasses, loupes, and tiny telescopes. These devices differ from normal spectacles and magnifiers in that they may deliver significantly greater magnification powers and prescription strengths, as well as higher-quality optics (i.e., the way the lens bends or refracts light). Most of the time, they require training to be used efficiently.
