Visual Impairment Sites

Visually impairment can be described as partially sighted, low vision, hard-of-seeing, or blind based on the degree of visual impairment. A person is considered LEGALLY blind when the best-corrected visual acuity is 20/200, or the person’s visual field is 20 degrees or less. Few legally blind persons have no sight; in fact, most have some remaining vision. Partially sighted or low vision generally refers to a severe visual impairment, not necessarily limited to distance vision. Low vision applies to all individuals with sight who are unable to read the newspaper at a normal viewing distance, even with the aid of eyeglasses or contact lenses. They use a combination of vision and other senses to learn, although they may require adaptations in lighting or the size of print, and, sometimes, Braille. Generally, the partially sighted individual has a central visual acuity range of 20/70 to 20/200 in the better eye with best correction by glasses.
