Low vision is a visual impairment that interferes with the ability to perform everyday activities, including reading, driving, shopping, and food preparation. This condition cannot be corrected by standard eyeglasses, contact lenses, medication, or surgery; therefore, people living with low vision must learn ways to adapt so they may continue living independently. For those who work with a low vision population, it is important to be familiar with the effects of this impairment and ways to help those living with low vision continue activities of daily living. The resources on this page provide information that describes low vision and the impact it has on different everyday activities, especially grocery shopping and food preparation. Some websites also sell adaptive equipment, including kitchen tools designed specifically to help those with low vision continue cooking.
