Screenings, Assessments, and Educational Evaluations for Learners who are Blind or Visually Impaired

Clinical Low Vision Assessment


The Clinical Low Vision Assessment is conducted by a Low Vision Specialist and is conducted to verify the student's visual acuity and visual abilities and find ways to enhance the student’s visual functioning. A low vision evaluation includes the review and evaluation of the learner’s ocular health, visual acuity, visual fields, color vision, refraction and lenses, binocular vision and oculomotor skills, contrast and light sensitivity, and low vision devices. If devices are recommended, they may be provided for a trial period. The teacher of the Visually Impaired (TVI) will work with the learner to instruct them in the use of the recommended low vision devices.
