Using Colors and Contrast Ratio to ensure Visual Accessibility

The experience of vision loss is unique to each individual because different factors can cause it, such as eye diseases, genetic disorders, old age, and injuries. It is important to understand that vision loss is a spectrum where individuals may have total, partial, or low vision, while others may have no sight at all.
