What is vision loss?

Vision loss, sometimes called vision impairment, can be blurring or clouding of vision, distortion (straight lines appearing distorted or wavy) or spots/areas of vision that are blank or dark. In some cases, it's as simple as needing glasses or contact lenses, but in others, vision loss can be serious and irreversible. It can vary from something that is largely unnoticeable by the person experiencing it, right up to blindness.
