Low Vision - The Best Job in Optics, Part 1.

This presentation explains how a deep understanding of the psychological impact of acquired low vision helps the clinician to maximise the success of the assessment. Videoed case histories underline the key messages throughout the presentation and highlight the value of providing a low vision service.

The film also includes a demonstration of some of the common low vision aids as well as some practical aids that can often be overlooked.
