TVC launches resource for low vision patients and caregivers
New Web site from The Vision Council aims to educate consumers about low vision.
Alexandria, VA-The Vision Council (TVC) has launched a standalone Web site, www.hatislowvision.org, dedicated to educating consumers about low vision and low vision solutions.
The site was created as a resource for people with vision impairment due to macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and other eye conditions associated with aging. It is fully functional for low vision users. The Web initiative can help answer questions that people with low vision, plus their loved ones and caregivers, may have by addressing its causes and warning signs, as well as vision-enhancing devices and treatments.
Maureen Beddis, vice president of marketing and communications for TVC, said: “During the past year we have been collaborating with key groups in the vision and caregiving communities toward the common goal of raising awareness for low vision and increasing knowledge of low vision solutions for improving quality of life.
