Blindness and Low Vision: An Introduction
People who are visually impaired, like everyone else, pursue a great range of interests and careers and participate in the full gamut of daily activities. They may need to receive training in various adaptive techniques in order to do so, and educational and other services and products are designed and available for this purpose.
This section of the AFB web site offers general information about blindness and low vision and descriptions of common causes of visual impairments; suggestions on how to perform a variety of daily activities with impaired vision and where to get special assistance; and statistics on visual impairment.
For more detail about any of these topics, see the other topics in the Information section of AFB's web site:
