Self-reported vision in (gerontological) health services research and practice-an opening plea.

The use of self-reported vision is an integral part of most population surveys and is primarily used for healthcare monitoring. Since the patient's assessment is not always consistent with the objectively measured clinical parameters, the majority of the literature looks critically at the adequacy of self-reported vision, particularly with respect to answering epidemiological questions; however, it is often misunderstood that self-reported vision measures far more than the directly derived information show....

Profile of the Australian College of Optometry low vision clinic.

The number of Australians living with vision impairment or blindness is expected to increase substantially due to the ageing population and prevalence of age-related eye disease. In response, the Australian College of Optometry (ACO) commenced a low vision clinic in 2013. The ACO is a not-for-profit organisation providing eye-care services to more than 60,000 Victorians per year experiencing economic or social disadvantage. Consultation fees are bulk-billed to the Australian national health care scheme - Me...

Feasibility of Telerehabilitation for Low Vision: Satisfaction Ratings by Providers and Patients.

This pilot study demonstrated feasibility and acceptability of telerehabilitation between a provider in-office and a low vision patient at home as an approach to provide follow-up care to improve reading ability with magnification devices and that would help overcome barriers related to transportation and paucity of providers.

Travel Cost Savings and Practicality for Low-Vision Telerehabilitation.

Veterans with low vision who live in rural communities have limited access to low-vision rehabilitation services, unless they are able to travel several miles to a specialty low-vision clinic. A low-vision optometry telerehabilitation evaluation is a thorough assessment of patient's functional vision. Following each low-vision optometry telerehabilitation evaluation is a low-vision telerehabilitation initial assessment with a blind rehabilitation therapist. Our objective was to estimate the acceptance and p...

Test-retest Variability of a Standardized Low Vision Lighting Assessment.

Systematic lighting assessments should be part of low vision evaluations. The LuxIQ has gained popularity as an assessment tool, but its reliability has not been examined independently and is necessary for evidence-based vision rehabilitation.

Low vision and mobility scooters: the experiences of individuals with low vision who use mobility scooters.

Older adults with low vision are a growing population with rehabilitation needs including support with community mobility to enable community participation. Some older adults with low vision choose to use mobility scooters to mobilize within their community, but there is limited research about the use by people with low vision. This paper describes a pilot study and asks the question: what are the experiences of persons with low vision who use mobility scooters?

Optical Care in Low Vision Patients.

The numbers of low vision patients will steadily increase because of increasing longevity. It is important to be aware of those patients so that visual rehabilitation can be started as soon as possible and needed. Before the adjustment of low vision devices a diagnosis should be confirmed in order to check any therapeutic option and to ensure the best individual rehabilitation. If there is no further therapeutic option left a detailed anamnesis of the problems due to low vision should be made to ensure that...

Increasing Screening Follow-Up for Vulnerable Children: A Partnership with School Nurses.

Approximately 20% of school-age children have a vision problem. Screening is an effective way to detect visual impairments, although only if adequate follow-up is available. Here, we evaluate the impact of hiring full-time nurses in four underserved schools on the likelihood of increasing follow-up for treatment after vision screening. First, we compared descriptive screening follow-up data from the intervention schools with that of five matched schools with part-time nurses in San Jose, California, from 20...

Does Central Vision Loss Impair Visual Search Performance of Adults More than Children?

In general, young adults with normal vision show the best visual search performance when compared with children and older adults. Through our study, we show that this trend is not observed in individuals with vision impairment. An interaction effect of vision impairment with visual development and aging is observed.

Testability Study of the Titmus V3 Test in Pre-school Children.

Vision screening can identify people who have vision problems requiring a comprehensive examination. When children are screened, the most prevalent serious problem is amblyopia secondary to uncorrected ametropia. Screening also identifies strabismus, which can lead to loss of binocularity. Early diagnosis permits treatment with restoration of balanced vision and binocularity.

Visual Health and Visual Healthcare Access in Refugees and Displaced Persons: A Systematic Review.

Vision impairment is a significant global health concern. Still, there remains a gap in our knowledge of visual health in refugees. We conducted a systematic review of the distinctive eye care needs of refugees. We screened PubMed, EMBASE, and Web of Science through February 17, 2017 for studies that focused primarily on visual health in refugees. Risk of bias was assessed using the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute quality assessment tools. 26 studies were included in the final review. The prevalen...

A Vision Enhancement System to Improve Face Recognition with Central Vision Loss.

The overall goal of this work is to validate a low vision aid system that uses gaze as a pointing tool and provides smart magnification. We conclude that smart visual enhancement techniques as well as gaze contingency should improve the efficiency of assistive technology for the visually impaired.

Disparities in Low-Vision Device Use Among Older US Medicare Recipients.

Low-vision assistive devices are not covered by Medicare and many private insurers, although there is evidence that they can improve functioning and quality of life. Little is known about whether sociodemographic disparities exist in the use of low-vision services by Medicare beneficiaries.

Effects of Progressive Additional Lenses on Binocular Vision in Children with Pseudophakia.

Binocular vision may be compromised in children after unilateral cataract surgery because the distances at which clear vision is present are different for the two eyes. We believe that wearing progressive additional lenses can be effective in improving the binocular vision in children with pseudophakia.

Randomized Trial of Tablet Computers for Education and Learning in Children and Young People with Low Vision.

Mobile devices such as tablet computers have become widely available as mainstream devices and are also used in some schools, but there is an absence of robust information regarding the efficacy of any optical/electronic low vision device or tablet computer in supporting education of young people with low vision.

Barriers and incentives for conducting research amongst the ophthalmologists in Sub-Sahara Africa.

Research is a critical component amongst the strategies to improve health outcomes of any country. The role of research assumes greater importance in Africa as it carries a larger share of the global burden of diseases, blindness, and low vision. "Vision 2020- the Right to Sight" is a WHO-IAPB collaborated initiative aiming to eliminate preventable blindness by the year 2020. High quality research in eye care is imperative for the initiative to succeed, however, there is a dearth of research in eye care in ...

Dual sensory impairment: The association between glaucomatous vision loss and hearing impairment and function.

Hearing impairment, vision impairment, and dual impairment (both hearing and vision impairment), have been independently associated with functional and cognitive decline. In prior studies of dual impairment, vision impairment is generally not defined or defined by visual acuity alone. Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness and does not affect visual acuity until late in the disease; instead, visual field loss is used to measure vision impairment from glaucoma.
