How do people with low vision see?

My friend Becca, whose job is to teach living skills to newly blinded adults, and I teamed up to write an informational photo journey through a few ways VI people see. We did this in an attempt to increase awareness and respect for those who navigate the world differently, not to inspire praise or pity. In general people who have a vision impairment are able to use alternate techniques to do just about anything they want to do, but it's helpful for sighted people to be aware of how a VI person sees and how hard he or she might be working to complete certain tasks, while other things that sighted people assume are impossible turn out to be quite easy.

But enough chattering! Here is our post:
