La Grow, Steven; Yeung, Polly; Towers, Andrew; Alpass, Fiona; Stephens, Christine
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v105 n10 p720-730 Oct-Nov 2011
A model of vision rehabilitation that assumes that functional ability will affect the emotional and psychosocial adjustment of older persons with visual impairments, and ultimately their quality of life, was assessed using structured equation modeling. The proposed model was upheld. In addition, the ability to get around was found to contribute to both functional ability and quality of life. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
