Society places more demands on the seeing and processing of visual information than ever before. Information is increasingly given in a visual way and with great diversity, such as traffic signs, high definition computer monitors, newspapers, books, television, LCD control panels, etc. The expanding flow of visual information makes a significant demand on visual processing and, as a consequence, people with decreased visual performance may experience any impairment as a handicap.

This book presents edited papers from the international conference on low vision, VISION 1993, held in Groningen, the Netherlands, in July 1993. The conference, attended by rehabilitation therapists, optometrists, occupational therapists, ophthalmologists, educationists, psychologists, clinical physicists, and other professionals in the field of theoretical aspects of vision and visual impairment, provided an interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of information, experiences and results from research and the different disciplines in the field of rehabilitation for visually impaired people.

The book contains descriptions of practical experiences as well as reports of the results of research projects, and will be of interest to all those working in the field of visual impairment.
