February: Low Vision Awareness Month

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), a person with vision impairment or low vision is someone who has less than 20/60 vision or a visual field less than 20 degrees in the better eye, and legally blind indicates that a person has less than 20/400 vision in the better eye after best correction.

People with low vision have trouble with their normal daily activities, such as reading or watching television. Low vision can be caused by congenital factors (such as hereditary developmental disorders), traumatic brain injuries at birth, and inherited eye diseases (such as night blindness or retinal diseases). Additionally, it can also be caused due to systemic diseases or age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

From February 1 to March 1 of each year is called Low Vision Awareness Month, and there is no better time to protect one of your most important organs, your eyes, by visiting an ophthalmologist. The low vision clinic of Noor Eye Hospital offers this service with the presence of the most experienced ophthalmologists and optometrist, and opticians.
