Types of low vision
Common conditions and issues of low vision
Sight is the sense we use to perceive objects and can be impacted or changed by many causes. Low vision or blindness may be present from birth, hereditary, develop over time, or occur as a result of illness or injury. It cannot be corrected with prescription glasses. We rely on our vision for many essential daily activities.
A significant change or ongoing low vision can greatly affect our independence and mobility. We provide support for any person who is experiencing difficulty in daily life as a result of low vision or blindness.
We rely on generous, ongoing support from the community to offer the highest quality supports for people with low vision, including our world-renowned Guide Dog training programs. Every contribution is crucial and incredibly valuable.
