Description of Research Report: A Qualitative Analysis of Reading Rehabilitation of Persons with Age-related Macular Degeneration

One of the most prevalent visual impairments of people aged 60 and older is age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which ranks third globally as a cause of visual impairment (World Health Organization, 2006). With AMD, central vision is lost and some peripheral vision remains, causing difficulties with fine vision and tasks such as reading and mobility, which results in reduced satisfaction and quality of life (Mackenzie et al., 2002) and anxiety and depression (Brown, Brown, Sharma, Busbee, & Brown, 2001).
