Synopsis

Low Vision Manual by Jonathan Jackson

'This book represents a real milestone for low vision care because it is one of the first low vision books in the world, and the first from the UK, that doesn't just give lip service to multi-disciplinary collaboration - it has a multi-disciplinary authorship' - Barbara Ryan, Research Associate, School of Optometry and Vision Sciences, Cardiff University, Cardiff, UK. Low Vision Manual is a comprehensive guide and up-to-date reference source, written by clinical and research experts in the fields of disease detection and management; primary and secondary optometric care; low vision optics and prescribing; and, counselling and rehabilitation.All these areas are explored in this book in four key sections: section one - definition of low vision and its epidemiology; section two: the measurement of visual function of the visually impaired; section three - the optics and practical tips on prescribing low vision aids; and, section four - rehabilitation strategies and techniques. This is an important reference tool for all professionals involved with the visually impaired. The book covers everything a practitioner will need on a day-to-day basis. Clear layout with practical tips, worked examples and practical pearls will enable the front-line eye-care professional to provide patients with sound, research-based clinical care and rehabilitation. This book is an essential reference for: ophthalmology; optometry; orthoptics; ophthalmic nursing; visual rehabilitation; occupational therapy; social work; peer work; psychology; and, dispensing opticians.

Reviews

This book is a welcome addition to any optometrist's library. It is useful for undergraduates, pre-registration graduates, low-vision specialists and in fact any optometrists. It may also be a useful reference tool for rehabilitation workers, social workers, occupational therapists and anyone working within the visual impairment field. With the increasingly ageing population it will be virtually impossible for any practising optometrist to avoid seeing a visually impaired patient.?
