Macular Degeneration Home > Low Vision and Macular Degeneration

If you have lost some sight and now have low vision due to macular degeneration, don't be afraid to use your eyes for reading, watching TV, and other routine activities. Normal use of your eyes will not cause further damage to your vision.
 
Ask your eye care professional about low vision services and low vision aids that can help you make the most of your remaining vision. Ask for a referral to a low vision specialist. Many community organizations and agencies offer information on low vision counseling, training, and other special services for people with visual impairments. A nearby school of medicine or optometry may also provide services.
