Visual Rehabilitation

Visual impairment is seldom life threatening, nevertheless, it is among the most disabling of medical conditions, especially in older adults. In 1999, the Institute of Ophthalmology inaugurated a new division devoted to the study of visual impairment (low vision), its impact, and its rehabilitation. The division's activities are distributed among three interwoven laboratories. The Low Vision Psychophysics Laboratory concentrates on the study of everyday task performance by people with vision impairment. The Vision Impairment Population Laboratory is devoted to the study of the impact of vision impairment in the population. The Clinical Low Vision Research Laboratory is dedicated to evaluating and advancing state of the art low vision care.
