The world around us is filled with much stimulation, and one of the main ways we experience it is through our sense of sight. From taking a glance at our surroundings, navigating our vehicles and viewing the visual stimuli that is presented in everyday life, our eyes are constantly receiving information. One’s ability to see, however, can be affected by a variety of factors. Disease, injury, aging and certain conditions can impact the level of vision in one or both eyes causing either temporary, immediate or gradual vision loss. While individuals living with partial or total vision loss lead independent lives every day, there is a period of adjustment. Additionally, age-related impacts, health issues, mobility limitations and other factors that can impede daily tasks and routines may also be present, and having an experienced care professional nearby can make a world of difference.
