Contrast sensitivity can be a better single marker for the disability caused by sight loss than visual acuity. However, Contrast Sensitivity Function (CSF) is not recorded on the CVI and it is questionable how well this measurement is understood or taken by people working in the field of visual rehabilitation. This short course aims to improve participants' ability to take simple measurements that can indicate the levels of CSF, as well as improving understanding of the findings and their implications.
Session 2 Eye Don’t Understand:
Using tactile and computer 3D models we will go on a journey to explore the normal functions of the eye. The short course will discuss the underlying causes of the common ocular diseases seen in practice and relate them to their functional consequences. Attendees will get a better understanding of the anatomy of the eye and how ocular disease causes impact on the daily lives of our service users.
