Reading in Patients with Low Vision

you should Paraphrasing the paper review

Major changes have occurred in our
understanding of low vision and its
assessment, particularly over the past
40–50 years. The era in which people with
low vision were assisted to use their vision,
rather than being considered blind, began
in the 1920s and 1930s but the first lowvision clinics did not commence until

reduce aberrations sufficiently to be used
as spectacle magnifiers for people with low
vision. In the early 1970s, Professor
Lederer (Sydney), Ian Bailey (Melbourne)
and Noel Verney (Queensland) led the
establishment of the first multidisciplinary
low vision clinics in Australia. Optometry’s
role in low vision services in Australia
was very much dependent on these few
individuals, who were in effect
‘learning on the job’ (Bailey IL, personal
communication, 1979).
Now low vision care is seen as an important speciality in optometry and students
receive many hours of lectures and practical instruction on the assessment of vision,
