When individuals who have had good eyesight begin to lose vision, they often struggle to understand what is happening to them. They may wonder if they will be able to do the activities they used to do. Through these 19 lessons, rehabilitation professionals share tips for how to safely and efficiently complete tasks. Topics range from understanding eye conditions to organizing the closet, from completing tasks in the kitchen to using a computer, and how to maximize the use of low vision to participating in leisure pursuits. Resources, services, and advice provide guidance for making the most of life with limited vision.
