Description of The Psychosocial Impact of Closed-Circuit Televisions on Persons with Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Closed-circuit televisions (CCTVs) are used by many elderly people who have age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The functional vision of 68 participants, which was measured immediately after they adopted CCTVs, suggested successful outcomes, but the psychosocial impact of the use of CCTVs did not peak until a month later. The findings help identify circumstances in which CCTV-assisted rehabilitation may be enhanced for better long-term outcomes.
