Low vision is a visual condition that cannot be treated medically or corrected with surgery. Anyone could be affected at birth or due to age-related disorders like muscular degeneration and glaucoma. 1 in 6 adults over age 45 has low vision; 1 in 4 adults over age 75 has low vision. The symptoms include blurriness, narrow vision, contrast, or glare sensitivity.
Varying degrees of visual limitations – reading or identifying people and objects – determines the requirements of products that enable users to live independently.
