Low vision and web use

We are please to share a new infographic on low vision. With this content, we aim to raise awareness of low vision and its impacts. We have included details on the size and growth of the low vision population, the causes and types of low vision, and the impact of vision loss on web use.

Through education, we hope to dispel some of the common misconceptions about low vision, including:

*	All vision issues are correctable
*	Anyone with non-correctable vision loss is blind
*	All vision loss is the same
*	Rates of vision loss are declining
*	People with similar conditions have similar needs
