About This Book
This book is about the visually impaired. It describes the usual elements of low vision—the low-vision examination, the corrective devices, microscopes, telescopes, hand and stand magnifiers, and nonoptical aids. There is so much more, and the book can be a great reference for the social worker, the physical therapist, the occupational therapist, the optometrist and ophthalmologist, and anyone who works with visually impaired individuals. There is a wealth of information that our authors have made available to the reader. The optics are simple to understand. Anyone who works with visually impaired will comprehend the pathology as most will have been exposed to them.
Contributions have been made by prominent men and women such as Dr. Paul Ajamian, Dr. Wayne Hoeft, Dr. Lawrence Kline, Dr. William Padula, Dr. Bruce Rosenthal, Dr. Tracy Williams, and Dr. Norman Weiss. They are some icons in the field of low vision.
