Did you know that February is Low Vision Awareness Month? This is an important time to educate ourselves about the symptoms of low vision and the importance of seeing an optometrist for regular eye exams.
Low vision is a visual impairment that generally cannot be corrected by glasses or contact lenses. People with low vision may experience a range of symptoms, including blurred or hazy vision, sensitivity to light, difficulty seeing at night, loss of peripheral vision, and difficulty distinguishing colors.
If you or someone you know is experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to see an optometrist as soon as possible. Optometrists are trained to diagnose and treat eye diseases and conditions, and they can provide low vision aids and devices that can help people with low vision function more effectively in their daily lives.
During Low Vision Awareness Month, the American Optometric Association is raising awareness about the importance of eye health and encouraging people to schedule regular eye exams with their optometrist. This is an important step in maintaining good eye health and preventing vision loss.
So, if you haven't had an eye exam in a while, take this opportunity to schedule one! Also, if you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms of low vision, don't hesitate to seek help. Remember, early detection and treatment can make a huge difference in preserving your vision and quality of life.
