Sight is the ability to observe lit objects, with the goal of orienting yourself on objects and people in a lit environment. This pertains to observing the light stimuli, and not processing them in the brain.
A sight disorder can lead to things including orientation problems.


Information on visual function disorders is important in patient care and treatment and particularly in the communication with the patient. Based on this information, healthcare can be adjusted to the patient’s limitations if needed.

Evidence Base

The definitions of the concepts were (partially) taken from the ICNP definitions.
