Vision Council Creates Site for Low Vision
www.whatislowvision.org. Its goal: to educate the public on low vision, its symptoms, and the resources available to help. As America's baby boomers enter their senior years, they may notice a gradual loss in some areas of sight. Loss of peripheral or central vision could indicate low vision, a visual impairment that cannot be corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, pharmaceuticals or surgery. More than 2.9M people in the U.S. suffer from low vision and it is most common in people age 60+.
