Investigation of Reduced Visual Acuity

Widely known as vision loss, visual impairment, low vision, or optical low vision aid. Reduced visual acuity occurs when a person ages. The symptoms that are person might experience would be:

  • Presbyopia
  • Decreased Contrast Sensitivity
  • Decreased Dark-Light Adaptation
  • Delayed Glare recovery

Reduced visual acuity can also be caused by an eye disease, in which visual acuity is 20/70 or poorer in the better-seeing eye and cannot be corrected or improved with regular eyeglasses. (Scheiman, Scheiman, and Whittaker). Here are some abnormal symptoms:

  • Loss of Central Vision
  • Loss of Peripheral Vision
  • Generalized Loss of Vision

“Visual Acuity” is a number that indicates the sharpness or clarity of vision. A visual acuity measurement of 20/70 means that a person with 20/70 vision who is 20 feet from an eye chart sees what a person with unimpaired (or 20/20) vision can see from 70 feet away. Reduced visual acuity can lead to many complications, for example, depression, social withdrawal, hallucinations, etc. Image optometry can provide the right vision aids, medication and therapy to help mitigate and even improve your vision.
