Low Vision From Cataracts
People with low vision from cataracts can still do things to make the most of their remaining sight. An eye care professional can advise you as to which treatment options are best for you and provide phone numbers or addresses for organizations that provide services for people who have lost some sight as a result of a cataract.
If you have lost some sight from a cataract or from cataract surgery, ask your eye care professional about low vision aids and services that may help you make the most of your remaining vision. Ask for a referral to a specialist in low vision. Many community organizations and agencies offer information about low vision counseling, training, and other special services for people with visual impairments. A nearby school of medicine or optometry may provide low vision services.
