Visual Impairment

Of, relating to, or for sightless persons.

New term: Hearing impairement

Visual impairment (or vision impairment) is vision loss (of a person) to such a degree as to qualify as an additional support need through a significant limitation of visual capability resulting from either disease, trauma, or congenital or degenerative conditions that cannot be corrected by conventional means.

Visual impairment is the consequence of a functional loss of vision, rather than the eye disorder itself.
