Research Report — JVIB Extract

Since Research Reports do not have abstracts, we have provided an extract of the beginning of the text.

Extract: The National Eye Institute (2015) reports that by the year 2050, the number of individuals with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) will rise from 2.07 million to 5.44 million. AMD causes central vision loss, which can affect independence in activities such as medication management, meal preparation, and personal finances (Smallfield, Clem & Myers, 2013). Most of these activities require reading, making an inability to read a concern for those with AMD (Hassell, Lamoureaux, & Keeffe, 2006).
