Description of Psychosocial Adaptation to Age-related Vision Loss: A Six-year Perspective

This comparison of the behavioral and emotional adaptation of elderly visually impaired and sighted people found that age-related visual impairment was associated with other forms of substantial loss that increased over a six-year period. The results underscore the need for the earliest possible intervention and rehabilitation to prevent psychosocial harm to elderly people who experience severe vision loss after a lifetime of seeing.
