My Perspective on Vision and Vision Rehabilitation

Journal Article


Vision is the most important sense for guiding our interaction with the environment. This discussion is based on a presentation I gave, when receiving a Lifelong Achievement Award from the International Society for Low Vision Research and Rehabilitation.  In it, I shared some of the insights I have gained over more than forty years in vision rehabilitation. In my career, I have been involved in clinical ophthalmology, in visual science and in vision rehabilitation.  Those domains all involve the eyes, but there are significant differences in how they approach the processes that lead from visual stimuli to visually-guided behavior.  I want to particularly stress aspects that may be overlooked.
