Thanks to modern medicine the average American live longer than their ancestors. However, that doesn’t mean that a person’s body is going to function normally. In fact, eye diseases and vision loss are a significant public health concern; 4.2 million Americans ages 40 and older are visually impaired. Experts project that visual impairment will affect 7.2 million by 2030. As many as 5 million will struggle with low vision.
“Low vision is a visual impairment that cannot be corrected by standard eyeglasses, contact lenses, medication, or surgery.”
If you’re are living with low vision, SDCB can help improve your quality of life.
