Low Vision

By Jan E. Lovie-Kitchin

Abstract

The care of low-vision patients is termed vision rehabilitation, and optometrists have an essential role to play in the provision of vision rehabilitation services. Ideally, if patients stay with one optometrist or practice, their low-vision care becomes part of a continuum of eye care, from the time when they had normal vision. If progressive vision loss occurs, the role of the optometrist changes from primary eye care only to one of monitoring vision loss and gradually introducing low-vision care, especially magnification and advice on lighting and contrast, in conjunction with other vision rehabilitation professionals
