Low Vision by the Numbers

Posted on: March 27th, 2013 by lowvision

Today, there seems to be an infographic for everything. Infographics, short for information graphics, are easy-to-read, easy-to-understand “run-downs” of any particular cause or issue. There is not much heavy reading involved and oftentimes, there are images to complement the lessons being taught.

We have developed a low vision infographic to help you learn more about low vision quickly and in terms that are easy to understand. You can also print this out and share it with people around you who might have low vision, or know someone who is experiencing it.

 

Welcome to the launch of the Low Vision Blog

Posted on: December 11th, 2012 by lowvision

Welcome to our low vision blog! We hope to bring you accounts of people living with low vision, their strategies, coping mechanisms and success stories. Although low vision cannot be reversed, with healthy practices and conscious effort, living with low vision can be fulfilling and satisfying. You can regain independence and confidence that you may have lost with your diagnosis.

Enjoy this website! If you or someone you care for has a story about living with low vision, please share it with us.

Wishing you well,

Erin Hildreth
