If you are newly diagnosed with low vision or have been on a circuitous search for guidance about living with your “new sight,” look no further.
The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) is the professional medical association of ophthalmologists, and its membership includes more than 90 percent of practicing ophthalmologists in the United States as well as more than 7,000 members abroad. Its mission is “to ensure that the public can obtain the best possible eye care.”
To access low vision information, visit the AAO website, www.aao.org, and type “low vision” in the search bar.
Note: Some of the information may be outdated because of the fast pace of technology solutions. For best results, ask your eye doctor or his or her staff for help.
