Health Tip: Living With Weak Vision

(HealthDay News) -- For folks with weak vision, eyeglasses, contact lenses, medicine and surgery may improve sight, says the National Eye Institute. Difficulty reading, matching colors and recognizing faces are common signs of weak vision.

If you have vision loss, the institute stresses the need for a support team. Having a primary eye care professional and an optometrist or opthalmologist who specializes in weak vision is important. With your team, you can discuss options for support services, adaptive devices and vision rehabilitation.

The institute encourages people with weak vision to be their own healthcare advocate. Remember to explore options, learn about your condition and ask questions.
