The Effectiveness of Perceptual Training and Psychosocial Counseling in Adjustment to the Loss of Vision.
Conrod, Beverley E.; Overbury, Olga
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v92 n7 p464-82 Jul 1998
This study evaluated the effects of perceptual training and psychological counseling on adjustment to vision loss in 49 elderly persons (mean age 70) with low vision. Overall, both interventions improved the participants' visual functioning and beliefs about the loss of vision, and follow-up interviews revealed that these improvements were maintained three to six months after the study ended.
