What causes vision impairment and loss?

Vision loss can happen gradually or occur suddenly, can impact both eyes or just one and it can affect your entire field of vision or only certain sections.

Vision loss is defined as the loss of eyesight that cannot be corrected with glasses or contact lenses and it is commonly caused by:

  • Genetic factors
  • Trauma or injury to your eye
  • Ageing
  • Other health conditions

Some vision loss and impairment comes from conditions that affect your eyes, while other  vision loss comes from conditions that affect the visual processing centres in your brain, i.e. how your brain perceives and filters what your eye can see.

  • Optic Nerve Atrophy – mild to severe damage to your optic nerve, affecting your central vision, peripheral vision and colour vision
  • Optic Neuritis – swelling and inflammation damages your optic nerve
  • Retinal Detachment – the layer of tissue on the inside of the back of your eye separates from your eyeball
