Low vision is when the best corrected visual acuity is 6/18 or less and/or field of vision of 10 degree or less.
It can also be described as people who are unable to see objects (say a person’s face) beyond a maximum of 3m i.e., 10 feet distance (with their spectacle correction) and/or people who have difficulty in their side vision (peripheral vision). This visual loss cannot be corrected completely with glasses, contact lenses, medication or eye surgery.
Most common conditions which require low vision aids are :
Age related macular degeneration
Optic nerve problem (eg. Optic atrophy)
In the low vision care clinic the following is done :
Assessment of difficulty level of the patients in performing day-to-day activities
Spectacle power check up
Testing with Low vision devices (optical and non-optical)
Colour vision assessment
Contrast sensitivity assessment
Field of vision assessment
