Low Vision

Help raise awareness about low vision and vision rehabilitation services

Vision loss can affect anyone at any age. Still, low vision is most common among people over age 65. Even when vision can no longer be improved through surgery or medicine, people with low vision can maintain their independence and quality of life.

The NEHEP Low Vision Education Program is designed to help you raise awareness about the benefits of vision rehabilitation among people living with vision loss, their family, and friends. Our educational resources will help you share the following message:

  • Vision rehabilitation can help people with low vision make the most of their remaining sight.
