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

Erin Kramer, OTR/L, CLVT

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.

Uncovering the Hidden Population in Low Vision: A 10-year look at the benefits of a driving program for a student-parent workshop

Cynthia Bachofer, PhD, CLVT

Driving is a teenager’s dream and having low vision may get in the way of that dream. Information on the potential use of bioptics for the novice driver is difficult to find, conflicting or inaccurate. A student-parent workshop developed at a statewide school for the visually impaired that focuses on safe driving with low vision has taken place for over a decade. Conversations at the conclusion of the workshop emphasized that this group of young adults was a hidden population. They often strive to pass as typically sighted and were not linked to resources and available programming.
