Self assessment: understanding your vision loss
Vision impairment may appear as one or more of three general conditions:
- Blurriness, where visual acuity with best spectacle correction is still reduced or blurred.
- Narrowing of peripheral or side vision.
- Defects within the field of vision, such as distortion or blind spots, loss of contrast, sensitivity to glare or light, and loss of color perception.
You will find several paths to follow for getting a better understanding of the actual state of your vision and (where appropriate) finding help with adapting to your vision challenges.
