Examining Outcomes of a Low Vision OT Intervention through Changes in Scores of Low Vision Independence Measure (LVIM ) and Improved Scanning Strategies.

This quantitative study describes methods of evaluating visual fields, compensatory scanning, and the performance of activities before and after a treatment protocol that purports to teach a visual scanning strategy that compensates for homonymous hemianopia and quadrantanopia. A novel test of visual fields was developed for bedside assessment, a standardized test of visual scanning was adapted, and a standardized test of self-reported difficulty with activities typically affected by visual impairment (Low Vision Independence Measure, LVIM) was blended into occupational therapy in an inpatient rehabilitation protocol for people with acquired brain injury.
