Low vision is an impairment of the human visual apparatus that results in greatly reduced living acuity and significant problematic consequences on daily life. It can be caused by various factors, whether congenital or acquired. The term low vision denotes very different vision disorders, ranging from stochastic vision to visual field restriction to the appearance of dark spots. Severe low vision often represents a transition to partial or complete blindness.
Low vision is defined as a person with a visual impairment of such magnitude that he or she does not
allow the performance of common activities of daily living. This disability results from an imeversible pathology that cannot be ameliorated through pharmacological or surgical treatment, nor corrected by conventional lenses.
All epidemiological studies have shown that the most important risk factor for the low vision problem is the age factor. The prevalence of permanent visual disability increases as it progresses: the visually impaired person is therefore almost always an older person. He is often a psychologically fragile subject, partly because he is in the unpleasant situation of losing his autonomy. In almost all cases, he lives a 'social marginalization due to the exit from the productive world, which is sometimes associated with a condition of loneliness -even family- especially in large cities. The loss or severe reduction of visual capacity irreversibly changes the individual's life and profoundly alters his external relationships. The resulting furtational limitations can affect all (or almost all) moments of personal life.
The following may be impaired
  • normal activities of daily living, such as dressing, washing, personal care, eating;
  • household activities, such as cleaning the house, shopping;
  • leisure and recreational occupations, watching television, reading, etc;
  • one's relationship and communication activities such as writing, dialing a telephone number;
  • one's work activities, such as using a computer, driving;
  • one's movement and travel skills, such as going out alone, taking public transportation, crossing an intersection;
However, it is essential for the visually impaired person to realize that visual impairment represents a part of himself, a reality that one has to live with. It is necessary to find out what has concretely determined the visual impairment and begin a new way of life using one's residual vision.
This is the best way to act by avoiding constant insecurity and fear that every activity is difficult or impossible. Do not try to hide your visual impairment.
