If you’re seeing a noticeable change in how you look in photos or videos, or feel tired or disoriented, you’re at risk of visual impairment.
Visual impairment is the inability to understand or interpret the visual world around you.
For example, a person with visual impairment might have trouble reading people’s faces.
Sometimes, however, the ability to understand how objects appear and how they fit together is not fully there.
There are different types of visual impairments: vision loss, visual field impairment, or visual dysopia.
Vision loss can affect your ability to see things that are behind you, for example.
Some people have trouble seeing things as they are, or in a different part of the frame.
A person with vision loss might see things differently when they’re not looking at them.
This can cause you to miss important details.
It can also lead to problems with reading speech, reading, and listening to people’s conversations.
Visual impairment can also affect your vision, making it hard to see certain details in the world.
Many people with visual impairions have difficulty using computers and other electronic devices.
In some cases, these people have difficulty with reading a book, listening to music, or even taking notes.
If you notice any of these symptoms, talk to your doctor about what might be causing them.
The following list of visual conditions and symptoms may help you diagnose visual impairment:Visible eye abnormalities: Visual field impairment: The eye muscles in your retina are under your eyes, making your vision appear blurry.
When you see things in a blur, your brain interprets them as being in the middle of the screen.
The same is true if you hear things in the blur, and your brain sees them as moving behind you.
Visual field loss: Your eyes can appear blurred or distorted when you’re looking at something or looking at a background image.
Blurred vision can make it difficult to read text.
Difficulties in reading are also common in people with vision disorders.
