What is a Visual Impairment ?


A visually impaired person’s eyesight cannot be corrected to a “normal level”.

It may be said that visual impairment is the functional limitation of the eye or eyes or the vision system such as:

  • Loss of visual acuity and inability of the person to see objects as clearly as a healthy person
  • Loss of visual field meaning inability of an individual to see as wide an area as the average person without moving the eyes or turning the head.
  • Photophobia – inability to look at light
  • Diplopia – double vision
  • Visual distortion or distortion of images
  • Visual perceptual difficulties or difficulties of perception
  • Or any combination of the above features
