Blind Low Vision NZ
Blind & Low Vision NZ support people with no or limited useful sight that makes doing day-to-day tasks a challenge, even with the best corrective lenses. Approximately three quarters of the people they work with have some vision (which we call low vision), and the remainder are blind.
Many people they support have one or more of the four most common eye diseases causing blindness and partial sight in New Zealand: Age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and cataracts. In fact, one third of the people Blind Low Vision NZ helps has macular disease. However, no two people’s sight is the same so they work closely with you to find the best solution depending on what your needs are.
