Course Description

This is a virtual, one-hour program focusing on optical and
non-optical solutions for reading and near task goals in low vision rehabilitation.
The program will focus on how to effectively and efficiently achieve reading and
near goals in patients with visual impairment and legal blindness. This will
include effective prescribing of visually assistive technology and optical solutions.
 

Recorded during our 2022 Low Vision, High Impact Series 

Lecture Objectives:

1. Understand the reading assessment and interpretation in patients with
visual impairment and legal blindness
2. Understand benefits, limitations and effective prescribing of spectacle-
based solutions for near goals and reading goals in low vision
rehabilitation.
3. Understand benefits, limitations and effective prescribing of hand,
stand and dome magnifiers for near goals in low vision rehabilitation.
4. Understand when contrast enhancing technologies may be required to
achieve reading and near goals in low vision rehabilitation.
5. Understand telemicroscopes and loupe systems for near goals in low
vision rehabilitation.
6. Understand how to prescribe effective and appropriate low vision
devices for near goals.
