Vision Loss
Vision loss is the absence of vision where it existed before, which can happen either abruptly or over a long period of time. Vision loss may be complete (involving both eyes) or partial, involving only one eye or even certain parts of the visual field. Vision loss can also be considered as the loss of sight that cannot be corrected to a normal level with eyeglasses.

There are many causes of vision loss. These conditions can vary from conditions affecting the actual eyes to conditions affecting the visual processing centers in the brain.

Common causes of vision loss in the elderly include:
Diabetic retinopathy
Glaucoma
Age-related macular degeneration
Cataracts
• Optic Neuritis 

Vision loss should be assessed and diagnosed by an eye care professional to determine the appropriate course of treatment. Contact us today if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.
