Age-Related Macular Degeneration: Face Fields and Microperimetry for Estimating the Location of Fixation in Eyes with Macular Disease
Janet S. Sunness pp 679-689
Face field evaluation provides insights into the presence and location of the preferred retinal locus, as validated by comparisons with findings from microperimetry. This technique requires no special equipment and can be used in a clinic or at a person's home by clinicians and low vision rehabilitation specialists
The Psychosocial Impact of Closed-Circuit Televisions on Persons with Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Jessica G. Huber; Jeffrey W. Jutai; J. Graham Strong and Ann D. Plotkin
Closed-circuit televisions (CCTVs) are used by many elderly people who have age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The functional vision of 68 participants, which was measured immediately after they adopted CCTVs, suggested successful outcomes, but the psychosocial impact of the use of CCTVs did not peak until a month later. The findings help identify circumstances in which CCTV-assisted rehabilitation may be enhanced for better long-term outcomes pp 690-701
Assistive Technology: Inventory of Electronic Mobility Aids for Persons with Visual Impairments: A Literature Review
Uta R. Roentgen; Gert Jan Gelderblom; Mathijs Soede and Luc P. de Witte
