Bilateral Atrophic Age-Related Macular Degeneration: A Case Study


As a low vision examiner for the Virginia Department for the Blind and Vision Impaired for over the past five years, I have had the opportunity to work with patient case managers who were vision rehabilitation teachers, vocational rehabilitation counselors, as well as orientation and mobility instructors. The patients have also had access to nurse educators and assistive technology specialists. As a member of a team providing vision rehabilitation, I have been inspired by what can be done for our patients in a non-profit setting.
