Low Vision Online is designed for people who know or work with
someone with low vision. It was not designed for low vision specialists
but those who in their every day life or work need to know more
about low vision. The website aims to give an understanding of
low vision. For those who want to learn more, links are given
throughout the site.
You can select the sections that are relevant to you. For a teacher
with a student with low vision in the classroom, most sections
might be of interest. Otherwise someone working in community programs
for older people might find sections on low
vision, eye care, vision
screening, functional assessment,
optical and non-optical
devices and orientation and mobility
useful. A community-based rehabilitation worker might only want
the sections on low vision,
eye care and vision
screening. You can choose the sections that suit you or work
through all of them at your own pace.
Questions have been included in each section. These are designed
to revise the main points.
We would be very happy to receive your comments on the website.
