Axzons Low Vision Care
Low vision can be described as a visual problem that cannot be corrected by standard glasses or medical interventions. The causes of low vision can range from eye diseases like macular degeneration, diabetes, glaucoma and cataracts or can be a result of neurological conditions such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis. Low vision can also occur as a natural degeneration or aging process of the healthy eye.
