Vision Rehabilitation includes a wide range of services that can restore functioning after vision loss. It allows people who are blind or have low vision, to continue live independently and maintain accustomed quality of life.
Shalini Khanna, the Director of the National Association of Blind centre of Blind Women and Disabilities in New Delhi, India; visited our School of Health Sciences to make us aware of the different rehabilitation methods which a low vision person can use as an alternative to access higher education, gain employment and become self-reliant. This lecture was attended by our Optometry students as well as the faculties.
The session was followed by Oxsight Crystal (device for peripheral vision loss) demonstration from our Sushant OXSIGHT low vision centre and they agreed for the same demo on patients from their centre.
