Description of The Effectiveness of Perceptual Training and Psychosocial Counseling in Adjustment to the Loss of Vision



Abstract: This study evaluated the effects of perceptual training and psychological counseling (both individual and group) on adjustment to vision loss in 49 elderly persons with low vision. Overall, the interventions improved the participants' visual functioning and beliefs about the loss of vision, and follow-up interviews revealed that these improvements were maintained three to six months after the study ended.
