This study aimed to identify the effectiveness of using optical aids in academic achievement in mathematics for a sample of low vision students. The study sample consisted of (30) of low vision students, they were distributed purposefully, (15 students) were assigned for the experimental group and (15 students) for a control group. For the purpose of this study, academic achievement in mathematics was assessed by pre/post-tests. The optical aids were used in instructing mathematics for the experimental group for three months.  The degrees of mathematics school tests were used after completing the training on using optical aids regarding all variables of the experimental and control groups. The findings revealed the presence of statistically significant differences in mathematics school tests in favour of the experimental group.
