Low Vision Check-List
There are many signs that can signal vision loss. For example, even with your regular glasses, you may have difficulty:
- Recognizing faces of friends and relatives.
- Doing things that require you to see well up close such as reading, cooking, sewing, or fixing things around the house.
- Picking out and matching the color of your clothes.
- Doing things at work or home because the light seems dimmer than it used to be.
- Reading street and bus signs or the name of stores.
You may have low vision.
