The amount of vision a blind person has significantly impacted what they can see. A person with limited vision could also perceive colors and forms in addition to light. However, they could struggle to read street signs, identify people, or match up colors.

The center of your range of vision may have a blind spot or a darkened area. Or you can have a problem with one or both sides of your peripheral vision. 

Varieties of blindness:

Various visual impairments might be lumped together under the umbrella term of blindness.

Poor vision

Poor vision is when your eyesight is permanently impaired, yet you still have some sight.

Low eyesight can result from a variety of disorders, including:

• glaucoma and macular degeneration

• cataracts

• Retinal ailment

Absolute blindness

People with eye diseases that are entirely blind from light are considered blind (NLP). In that instance, a person is altogether blind to all light. Trauma, accidents, or diseases like end-stage glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy can cause this.

Blindness from birth

People who are born blind fit this criterion. While the reasons for certain congenital eye diseases are still unclear, others might manifest during pregnancy and result in blindness.
