Oh, the Places You’ll Go…with an iPad: The Low Vision Professional’s Perspective

The world of technology has exploded in the last two decades and has become an integral part of our society. One of the populations that have benefitted the most is the blind and visually impaired. This article will discuss how the iPad in particular has opened the world of technology to both the visually impaired and the rehabilitation professionals who work with them. Topics discussed will include how an iPad is successfully used as a low vision device, particularly as a video magnifier, recommendations for accessibility features and applications; and how the iPad can be utilized for patients based on their eye disease and level of vision.
