What is Low Vision?

Low vision is a vision problem that makes it hard to do everyday activities. It can’t be fixed with glasses, contact lenses, or other standard treatments like medicine or surgery.  You may have low vision if you can’t see well enough to do things like read, drive, recognize people’s faces, tell colors apart or see your television or computer screen clearly.

Mission, Values and Goal

Our Mission: To prove even with low vision, the light at the end of the tunnel is still ON.

Our Goal: To be the premier online support group for those living with low vision.

HOPE: Medical science may not be able to restore our eyesight, but hope can be restored when users connect with, inspire, and empower others.

ACCESSIBLE: Born out of a passion for making the world more accessible, a legally blind nurse (RN) founded and built with physical handicaps using cutting-edge assistive technology. Members have control over their data, privacy, and user experience.

COLLABORATIVE: No shareholders, no bottom-line or hidden agenda.

MEMBER-CENTRIC: Members determine the content, planning, design, and propose of LVSG.
