A SIMPLE GUIDE FOR
LOW VISION PERSONS
Low vision means any vision that is adversely affecting a person's everyday life. It cannot be corrected with additional surgery or regular prescription lenses.

if he/she has done all that he/she can do,
if he/she can recommend a low vision clinic in your area, and
what your visual acuities are.

for additional services in your area.
