Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v103 n5 p277-290 May 2009
Macular degeneration has a severe impact on a person's ability to perform activities of daily living. This study investigated the impact of in-home training in eccentric viewing on near acuity and performance of activities of daily living. The results suggest that eccentric viewing can ameliorate the impact of the loss of vision that is due to macular degeneration. (Contains 2 tables and 5 figures.)
