Research Overview

I am evaluating the use of Pocket and Portable Electronic Low Vision Aids (PELVAs) (known as electronic magnifiers) in people with visual impairment. My project aims to  1) investigate the parameters in commercially available PELVAs such as magnification and contrast 2)  describe the prescription pattern of these devices among visually impaired 3) evaluate the use and satisfaction of PELVAs compared to the optical devices for people with visual impairment  4) investigate which factor(s) (visual functions and/or device parameters) affect reading performance in people with age related macular degeneration who are using PELVAs and to inform those who prescribe or choose PELVAs which functions or attributes are most important
