Causes of Low Vision
Congenital Diseases (Present at Birth)
- Optic nerve atrophy and hypoplasia (small optic nerves)
Acquired Diseases (Develop After Birth)
- Eye injury
- Retinopathy of prematurity (eye disease of premature infants)
- Cerebral/cortical visual impairment (from brain damage)
Inherited Diseases (Runs in a Family and mostly due to close relative marriages)
- Hereditary retinal diseases
- Retinitis pigmentosa
- Optic atrophy
Many eye diseases can cause low vision in older ages.
Because seeing involves both the eye and the brain, diseases that affect the brain, such as strokes, also can lead to low vision.
All the above groups of very well known diagnosis are good candidates for application of Mini Telescopic Glasses. Ocular Albinism, Cone-rod dystrophy (CRD), Nystagmus, Stargardt’s disease, Optic Atrophies, Macular Degeneration, Diabetes, Maculopathy are very common diseases that benefit greatly from Mini Telescopic Glasses reaching to an almost normal vision level in distance, near and mobility tasks like biking, driving. Many Mini Telescopic Glassses are like regular spectacles from outside and they are light, beautiful not weird like old classic low vision glasses.More True stories Gain back your vision
