This report provides some statistical information based on clinical data gathered on low vision patients who attended the low vision clinic of the Hong Kong Society for the Blind in the first three years of its operation. In this period, low vision devices were prescribed for 393 patients (46.5 per cent of the sample). The most commonly prescribed aids were simple magnifiers and distance telescopes. Cataract was the major cause of low vision.
