Utilizing Assessment Tools to Guide Low Vision Practice: A Review for Low Vision Therapists

Understanding low vision and the implications low vision has on functional performance and engagement in daily activities can prove to be challenging for a low vision therapist. Often clients’ functional goals are complex and multidimensional. Sorting through these functional goals, knowing where to begin to address these needs and designing an appropriate and achievable treatment plan can appear overwhelming. Low vision assessment tools can present a pathway and offer in-depth information regarding visual function, provide a starting block for intervention planning, and demonstrate client strengths and weaknesses in order to better customize a low vision program specific to each client.
