Given the vital role vision plays in every aspect of life, all optometrists—regardless of specialty—must be able to distinguish between visual problems that can be corrected with conventional interventions and those that cannot. Low vision, which interferes with everyday activities, cannot be fixed with glasses, contact lenses, or other standard treatment approaches. Therefore, it is critical that primary care optometrists understand how to support these patients in their practice, even if their role is limited to assessment and comanagement.
