Residual sight

People with vision loss who have some usable vision may be able to navigate by learning to use their remaining vision more effectively. Many enhance their remaining vision with the use of low vision aids and visual efficiency training. However, under poor lighting conditions, people who normally travel using residual sight but who have night blindness may use a mobility aid to ensure safe and independent travel.
